PERCY was born 6 May 1883 in Palmerston North, New Zealand. His parents were Charlotte Eliza (Park) Russell and George Warren Russell. At some stage Percy went to Australia, but I do not know when or which immigrant ship he sailed on, which port the ship went to, if he got married and if he did who were the names of his children. Where did he live and what kind of work did did he do.A death notice has been found that he died in Victoria, Australia in 1950. If anyone has any information about him could you please contact me, Jocelyn Le Noel. Percy was my 1st Cousin, 3x removed. Thank you.

Matthew Park

In and on the Bosman/Sleith Family Tree there a mention of Matthew Park's death in 1899, age 99. Could someone please advise me how you found this information and is it correct. Perhaps someone could provide further information on his death records and where is he buried.

From searching the 1841 England census he is listed as being alive, but Matthew does not appear in the 1851 or there after. He was born 16 Aug. 1800 in Paisley, Renfrewshire, Scotland. He was the father of my great great great grandfather Gavin McIntyre Park. Gavin came to New Zealand in 1848 and some other members of the family also came over. Matthew's wife Elizabeth (which is Gavin's mother) also arrived in this country without her husband.

I really would appreciate any information that people may have.

Many thanks

Matthew Park born abt 1801 Paisley Abbey, Glasgow, Scotland

I am looking for three of Matthew Park's children.They are Elizabeth Park, Robert Park and John Park. They stayed in Scotland and their mother Elizabeth McIntyre Park and the other children immigrated to New Zealand at different times between 1848 and 1860 arriving in Port Chalmers, Dunedin. I would like to have closure on Matthew and Elizabeth Park family, so if anyone has any information regarding Elizabeth, Robert and John, please let me know.
Thank you

McKenzie Family

Hello to All

I have been given this photo from Robyn McKenzie who found it amongst some McKenzie's file, it was either from Kenneth Walter McKenzie or Kenneth Graham McKenzie.

Does any one know who the lady is in her wedding gown. The date on the back says 23 April 1955.

Please let me know.

Thank you

I am looking for John McKenzie (MacKenzie) and his wife Elspeth (McLean) McKenzie. I do not know where they were born, but I checked the marriages of Scotland Select Marriages, 1561-1910 and found they married on 7 February 1816 in Fodderty, Ross and Cromarty, Scotland. The only children names I have are:-
Kenneth McKenzie, born 11 January 1828 in Fodderty, Rosshire, Scotland, and Alexander McKenzie, born 1829 in Strathpeffer, Inverness, Scotland. JOHN AND ELSPETH MCKENZIE HAD MORE CHILDREN AND I WOULD LIKE TO KNOW WHO THEIR NAMES WERE?.
It is written in a file of the Palmerston North Library Archives, New Zealand, that Kenneth McKenzie was one of three brothers who came to New Zealand from Scotland. The youngest of the three was Alexander McKenzie.
Could you please let me know if you have any information about this family. Thank you. Jocelyn Le Noel
