Wow, thanks so much. Quite unbelievable how resourceful you are. Building family tree is possible using online technology.

So now I am enthused, where am I best to go from here? How do I save this information, do I have to hard copy print, or r there some smart ways in this site. Henry Harry Windle is my great grandfather. Can I go back further into his parents genealogy?

Also going forward to Harry's children and their children?

How about site technology to help build the family tree?

Hi Hokinuidrive,

Some other useful resources are BDM NZ, which is very easy to use. Will provide births, deaths and marriages within timeframes permissable within privacy guidelines.

Also, searching Papers Past provides some interesting information... Henry Windle senior (also called Harry), was a farmer....

Good luck!
