PECK of TAITA
The "yesteryears" site searched the name McMath and found mention of disembarked passangers at Bluff in September 1862.First stab at vessels name is possibly "Robert Henderson". I am looking for Thomas McMath 24/12/1840-14/9/1906 BDM 1906/5736.Also "Papers Past" Wairarapa Daily Times-vol LV,issue 8560 pg 5 dated 20 sep 1906,referers to immigration 44yrs previously.
Thankyou Thomas McMath was my 5th gen grandfather and the first immigrant into NZ in my family line so I am interested in finding out as much as I can about him as well as the rest of his family ie the brother James and there mum n dad etc. We have messaged each other previously regarding the Mclauchlan line of my dad. Peter Mclauchlan
Also Thomas Reid,s shipboard dairy contains a few names and details that may be of use.
aaah! yes, I remember the McLauchlan research for your dad that was quite some time back. You have deleted some of your older postings, did you keep all the research?
Yes on the my heritage site a relative in Ausie took me back to the 1630,s which was good but to be honest the hunt is as good as the find if you know what I mean, so I have been working on the other lines in my tree so this McMath connection is thru my mums mum.
