My grandmother Alice McGinty and her sister Mary Ann were born in Clifton NI NZ between 1870 and 1874; have birth cert for Mary Ann (1872)but can't find one for Alice. Mother's name Sarah, father John. Baptism records could help.Any suggestions welcome.

Mothers maiden name was Webb, but married name Larcombe before becoming McGinty. There is a possibility the birth was not registered, but I do not know where to look for baptismal records - probably some Church of England church near Clifton.

Looking for Mary Heenan (or Heneghan) born 1848/9 Australia

I am looking for Mary Heenan, the daughter of John Heenan (or Heneghan) and Margaret Kelly, she was possibly born in Australia 1848/9. She was the eldest daughter - I have been able to trace all the rest of her brothers and sister - but can find no trace of Mary.
I am also trying to find when the came to NZ - they settled on the West Coast of NZ. If there are any other Heenan family researchers out there I would love to hear from you. One of their children (Martin) was registered under the name Heneghan so Mary could be registered under either name.
