The Beginning of the research into the family tree starting with my grandparents George Percy James and Annie Vida James (nee Gilroy)
I noticed when I typed Annie Vida Gilroy into Google it came up with her name and marriage to Percy George James. Further down I noted that her sister Constance had married Brian Butler. I decided your site would be a good one to start with. With their children getting on in years I decided, that, with a friend researching her family tree, I best get on. Annie and Percy lived and raised their family in Wanganui. My grandmother Annie came to New Zealand from Scotland when she was 11 years old. Her father worked for the Wanganui Woollen Mills.
