W surnames on PECK of Taita

The tree, PECK of Taita, contains many early settler families of New Zealand. Started in 2008 as a Family Tree of Samuel PECK, it now contains thousands of people who are not at all related to him, but are still connected (in varying degrees) through generations of marriages. The site has therefore been changed to a 'Genealogy Help Site' for those researching 'Kiwis' in all NZ districts
