Collings, New Zealand
Hi, I'm trying to trace my family history from my father Pat born in 1927 in Devonport, Auckland, New Zealand, Died 2005 in Christchurch, New Zealand.
His father was William Richard Collings who arrived from the UK in 1923. From what I have managed to glean from the UK Royal Navy records he was born in Devenport, Devon in the UK on the 8th of April 1893.
I don't who his Dad was and anything about him prior to that period.
My name is Raoul Collings, born Christchurch New Zealand in 1953 but now residing in Auckland. My 3 children are Matthew Raoul Patrick (born 1978), Kristen Michelle (born 1980) and Adam Nicholas (born 1984).
