Great work, very helpful. My maternal grandmother and maternal great aunt are here. I don't think you have my grandmother's name correct. She was Mary Elizaberh Woods nee Blee. Ursula is my mother's name Ursula Kathleen Smith nee Woods. My grandmother had two boys and prayed to St Ursula to have a girl. My mum came along and got the German name meaning "Little bear" which really suits her!

I have wedding photos for my grandparents but it is teh first time I have learnt what year they got Married! Any idea where they got married? May have been St Joseph's Cathedral where my parents got married.

I would be grateful for any information regarding my grandmother's mother Honora "Nellie" Blee. I know she came from Ireland and the rest of her family went to the USA and she is recorded in BDM as Nellie Keating. I have photo with my grandmother, Nellie and I think her other sisters but no names or where they settled in USA.

Thanks for teh info on the Blee weddings.I can confirm that Aileen, James and Mary were the only children on Edward James Blee. There is a typo on the Cemetery records regarding my grandmother, Mary Elizabeth Woods last known address. It was a pensioner flat and the address should be 39B Norwood St.

I hope you can come across some more information on Nellie Keating. I have hit a brick wall. Happy to provide you with a copy of teh photo I have of her, if you would like it.

Honora 'Nellie' KEATING (1863-1945) was born in Tralee, County Kerry, Ireland. Her parents were Daniel Keating and Mary Sullivan. (from her NZ Death Cert) Does anyone have any information on her parents and / or her two sisters that migrated to the United States? I don't have their names or where they migrated to in the US. They did visit NZ as there is a formal photo of them with Honora Keating and my grandmother Mary Elizabeth
