Hello kiwikaz.
Just a short message to wish you all the very best with your research (its not as easy as they say..is it!!..) (how can you tell I am a newbie..)

As I search for details of my own family (SCANLON) I will keep a look out for the names you have listed.
And if anything turns up I will pass on the links to you.. cheers Summers

Just had another thought, explore the areas your relations were born, and brought up and see if any have local website links you can post info on. You may get a rush on family details...good luck, cheers Summers

Dear Kiwikaz, I don't believe there will be any records for surname SHIVAS in New Zealand pre 1763 ancestor-wise, but no doubt there are a large number of people with surname SHIVAS post 1763.

Can you please provide children's names of John and Sarah etc.?
