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
Te Uru o Tane Urupa (Blackbridge) Greytown

Hi Jo Jo

Te Aitu-o-te-Rang died in 1854 it is unlikely therefore that this Muretu born in 1872 was her child perhaps a Grandson??

Thanks for all your efforts.
Regards Tony

Thank you
Hi Jojo,
Thanks so much for bearing with me on this. When I paste the html text into your public messages some of it doesn't show up, so perhaps you wouldn't mind inserting an < /a> after the words Bagneau British Cemetery, but please take out the space between the left arrow and the slash.

Kindest regards

Thank you
Hi Jojo,
Thanks for updating the information for Will.

It appears that the link hasn't come out quite right, and so I'm wondering if you would please try it again by pasting in the paragraph below however when you paste it into the biography the space between the left arrow < and the letter a will need to be removed < a.

Lance Corporal Will Heckler is buried in the < a href="">Bagneux British Cemetery in France.

If you would prefer me to update it, just transfer it to me, and I will transfer it back within 24 hours.

Don't hesitate to email me if I can help.

Kindest regards,

Kindest regards,

Edit for Will Heckler 118795182
Hi Jojo,
I have noticed that my request on your home page doesn't show the HTML code I requested you add to Will's biography instead only the link shows up so I have sent it as a suggested Edit for Will Heckler.

If the suggested Edit is pasted into his memorial page 118795182 biography section the link will display although you will have pasted in the html code.
Kindest regards,

Robert Wilfrid Langdon
Hi Jojo,
I have sent an Edit for Robert Wilfrid Langdon for a paragraph to be included in his biography that adds a link to his Find A Grave burial in West Flanders. The HTML code won't show once the bio is saved. Please let me know if you haven't received it or have any concerns.
Kindest regards,
