Fav Quote - In finding them, we somehow find ourselves. How many graves have I stood before now and cried? I have lost count. How many times have I told the ancestors, 'You have a wonderful family; you would be proud of us.' How many times have I walked up to a grave and felt somehow there was love there for me? I cannot say.

It goes beyond just documenting facts. It goes to who am I and why do I do the things I do. It goes to seeing a cemetery about to be lost forever to weeds and indifference and saying I can't let this happen. The bones here are bone of my bone and flesh of my flesh. It goes to doing something about it. It goes to pride in what our ancestors were able to accomplish. How they contributed to what we are today. It goes to respecting their hardships and losses, their never giving in or giving up, their resoluteness to go on and build a life for their family. It goes to deep pride that the fathers fought, and some died to make and keep us a nation. It goes to a deep and immense understanding that they were doing it for us.

RE: Tutaenui Cem.
Hi Jo, I have just had confirmation that they have checked and corrected the record online.

RE: Tutaenui Cem.
Hi Jo, I know what you are saying - I have just sent a message off to the BDM people to ask them to correct it as well. I have done considerable research on the BETT family and double checked this this afternoon so am quite confident that there have been a mistake made with the BDM transcript. Leave it how it is at the moment and I can get back to you when I hear from them.

Tutaenui Cem.
Hi Jo, fantastic job you are doing - I would never have found these people otherwise. However I have located a problem and am not sure if I can correct it or if you need to do so.

Sarah Stanley McBETH was not a BELL - her maiden name was BETT. I believe that the reference on the grave is to her son-in-law Charles Edward BELL - her death notice records that one of her daughters was Mrs BELL and marriage records show Catherine Mary McBETH & Charles Edward BELL.

RE: Janet Galbraith
Hi Janet

No problem. I don't have any connection with her as I only transferred the transcribed stones for the graveyard on Gigha to FindaGrave.

Agnes McGill
Hi Jo
I have found a Rita McGill in the Okato cemetery with the same death dates as Agnes. She is with her husband William Adair McGill. If this is correct I have the photo of both available to load up.
Kind regards

August William Crowder
Hullo Jo
My name is Trevor Grice.
I am a descendant of August & Annie Crowder, my great grandparents.
Amazed to see the photo of their grave site in Huntly. I never knew they or it existed.
On behalf of my cousins I have made a chart of the Crowder family and am only too happy to email you a copy of it and supporting items should you wish.
I'm curious to know the path of your connections to August & Annie. Presumably you are from one of their daughters, or maybe William their son ?
I also wonder if you know the towns they were born in and did they meet in Poland or Liverpool,
I now live in Australia and my email address is
Hoping to hear from you

I have added photo's to both Janet and John's Memorial pages. I am sorry there is no Headstone for either.
Dunedin Kiwi has claimed these pages for some reason
Best Wishes Garry

RE: Little Family
Thank you for the information and heads up. And thanks again for the work you do, it is much appreciated.

I am familiar with Mary Irene McIntyre. Would it be possible to have her transferred to me also. What a great find.

I have seen the name Apiti but not familiar with it so more researching for me. Just purchased a nice large map of New Zealand so I have been highlighting all the places I come across. I did a google search of Bunnythorpe and was able to home right in on the cemetery.... so should be able to do that with Apiti / Table Flat

If you get this twice I apologize, I was right in the middle of typing this out and it disappeared.

I was sure thrilled to find my Great Grand Uncle, his wife and one child and another wife. Thank you for all you do.

I wonder if you would consider transferring these accounts to me #48609673 Sandra Gardner-Benward unless you are related in which case I would love talking with you too.
