hi mitches, who were your ancestors??

by mitches1829 on 2013-02-14 19:37:19

hi ngiare?
Please excuse the spelling errors, must have been having a Youngtimers moment.
My grt grt grandparents William Henry Mitchell and Mary Jane Parrott, they had 11 children (possibly a couple more), Most of them resided in the Northlands, Nz.
I am finding that nz bdm death index is rather difficult to usedue to lack of information included. It is a bit hit and miss. So I hope that I might find some useful clues in the cemetery indexes that you posted the link to.
Yes Mary Jane Mitchell, nz star athlete, carver, painter extraordinaire was his grand daughter.
I am still looking for the descendants of Samual alfred Mitchell, Raupo and John Mitchell of Dargaville, and paeroa. Malcolm (Bill) Mitchell b. 1867 Aus.
Thank you again. sharene
