My Family History interests are:

  • Cemeteries (a lifelong fascination inherited from my mother!). I have been compiling information on New Zealand burial sites which is documented at:
  1. List of New Zealand Burial Sites
  2. Map of New Zealand Burial Sites (using Google Maps)
  3. New Zealand Cemetery weblinks linking to websites with burials databases and descriptions of cemeteries
  4. This Wiki where I have started to add the stories and photos of burial sites, see Category:Burial Sites
