Bio and Links
Bio Photo Hi from New Zealand. There are a few cemeteries in my local area in South Auckland/Franklin area. 30 I've been reliably informed.
For a personal project, I'm photographing and putting online the headstones that are in our local cemeteries. Just starting on this project in 2011. I have a feeling this is going to take a long time, just doing a few at a time.
My daughter has joined forces and is photographing graves in the Auckland area. (I type, she posts the pictures :) )
If I get something wrong, or you want to make some changes to a memorial, then please use the edit button.
Please do not ask me to delete a record I have created if you created the second one after I did. If you want to add something, please use the edit button
I understand I can also transfer the ownership of the memorial to a relative.
I am willing to take photos in the Franklin district, South of Auckland City in New Zealand. Again, please leave a message.

Elizabeth Stewart Foote
Hi Bea. Thanks for that news. I have also discovered that my Frederick John Foote has a slighty different date of death just by a few months so obviously you and I concerned about different people. Thanks for the reply.

Elizabeth Stewart Foote
Hi Bea. Chuckles. I stand to be corrected but I am unsure that Elizabeth Stewart Foote (? - 1916) is wife of Frederick John Foote (? - 1914). I use and tend to consider Frederick John Foote's (1851 - 1914 Thames) wife to be Mary Elizabeth Bisset (1857 Sorrel Tasmania - 1935 NZ). My main envidence involves their marriage in 1878. If you go to and bring up the marriage tab and at the bottom of the page put in 1878/2434 where it says Registration Number.
If I am grossly mislead please let me know.
However, regardless thank you for the grave-burial details for John Foot.
All the best,
Ivan Tchernegovski (related to the Bisssets).

Hello you have posted the photos of some of my family and I would love it if you could transfer them to me. There is Alma Jane Skinner, Thomas Lauriston Skinner and Hazel Skinner.

I plan to sponsor them all and update their details for others. Thanks again for posting these in the first instance.

Tuakau Cemetery
Hi Bea,
Thank you for doing a fantastic job. Being from South Auckland and living overseas it is a huge help when I can find an ancestor on find a grave. Can I suggest a slight change? Tuakau Cemetery comes up with an address/location of Auckland, Auckland, New Zealand, could we get an actual address? And when I have merged graves with ancestry it says that the burial is in Tuakau, Frankton, New Zealand. I believe Frankton (a town near Hamilton, N.Z.) should be changed to Franklin (the county where Tuakau resides).
Many thanks again. Appreciate all your efforts on this huge project.
Kind regards
