Bio and Links
Bio Photo I live in the Wairarapa, New Zealand with my husband & 2x children. I have enjoyed helping people find lost & missing family members over the past few years. Feel free to leave me a message if you have extra information for someone.

I am trying to add all local entries, but I also enter the deaths from the local paper, so I can connect them with any family at these cemeteries. (I do not keep copies of the obituary). For those entries which I have just the year of death date I have estimated the persons birth date, if you know the correct DOB date let me know and I will insure the correct information is entered. I am not related to 99.9% of my entries.

Many people like being able to see family members headstones as they don't live near but others may not, If you want a family member removed feel free to let me know. I am happy to do this.
I don't need to be abused for this to happen.

If I have made an error I'm also happy to change this.

Cemeteries I have done and are complete are

Akura Urupa Masterton
Ahipanepane Urupa Te Ore Ore, Masterton
Hamuera Urupa Gladstone
Oates Family Cemetery Carterton

Hi Jo Jo. As I will be going to Waipukurau soon to fulfil photo requests I was doing some pre searching. The CHB Council do not have Mary listed on their database. I did however come across a Mary Barrie buried in 1952 at the Wakapuaka Cemetery in Nelson & a Hugh Clark Barrie buried in 1937 at the Syndenham Cemetery. I was wondering if these were the people you seek. If not, more info would be great to assist in fulfilling your request. Thanks Rachael.

Thanks for the Photos
HI Jo Jo,

Thanks for getting the Udy photos for me. I have added quite a few new names to both Archer Street and Clareville from their online records and have been busy connecting the families. I am sure they'll be many more to photograph some lovely summer day.
Wish I wasn't half way across the world. I'd love to do it myself.

Hi Jo. I was wondering if you have a plot location for Mary as her name doesn't come up on the CHB database list for Waipukurau.
