HOME OF THE AMERICA'S CUP

             I am researching my folk who
             
                migrated to New Zealand.                                                                                                                                                                

     They came from LANARKSHIRE and 

                  ABERDEEN in SCOTLAND

   BRISTOL and  Newcastle on Tyne NORTHUMBERLAND.
    St.Just, Penwith, in CORNWALL: Brough in WESTMORLAND:                                             

             Ware, in HERTFORDSHIRE  and from LONDON.

      From here I hope to share my Genealogy and Favorite Sites, detail  my
     Family Resources and Help you (and Me)  to  discover more about those 
                                             who have gone before Us!
