Help wanted on McFETRISH from Antrim, Ireland to Wanganui, New Zealand

Journal by ngairedith

Click here to see James McFetrish from Antrim, Northern Ireland. He arrived in New Zealand, date unknown and appears to have settled in Wanganui

I have no spouse for James - can you please help?

He had 4 children, 3 boys for who I only have names - I need birth and death dates and spouses, children etc

The one girl James had was Annie Louisa "LULU" McFetrish who married Sideny Bell in 1909 in Wanganui, New Zealand

My name is Helen McFetrish and my grandfather was one of James sons, William George Trowell McFetrish. James married in Oamaru to Annie Kelly in 1875 and they had their children mostly on the West Coast before getting to Wanganui where they settled and eventually died. My grandfather had four children, the eldest my father who was born in Australia and came to NZ when about 20. We have a strong Australian connection.

A couple of days ago i found myself back looking thru the NZ Dept. of Internal Affairs website, and to my delight they'd added a new feature ... The Birth, Death and Marriage Historical Records website, where you can search New Zealand Government records for births, deaths and marriages (BDM).

The historic data available for you to search is limited so that information relating to people who might still be alive, can be protected. Information available includes:

* Births that occurred at least 100 years ago
* Stillbirths that occurred at least 50 years ago
* Marriages and eventually Civil Unions that occurred 80 years ago
* Deaths that occurred at least 50 years ago or the deceased's date of birth was at least 80 years ago.

Here's the link:
Pass this onto as many people you know who are researching people in New Zealand
