the Maoriland Worker - 3 Jan 1917

The Maoriland Worker, later called The Standard, was a leading New Zealand labour journal of the early 20th century.
It was launched in 1910 by the Shearers' Union and was initially published monthly (Frank Langstone was involved). It was soon taken over by the New Zealand Federation of Labour and became the official organ of the federation.
The journal ceased publication in 1960. At the time it was called The Standard and was published weekly

Raroa Road, KELBURN - shorter tram line to Karori & Northland 1856

From the Evening Post, 9 September 1922
SOME EARLY HISTORY - ORIGIN OF RAROA ROAD

PETITION TO PROVINCIAL COUNCIL
- A VALUABLE DOCUMENT -

Much discussion is now taking place on the question as to whether Raroa road is the best route to adopt for constructing a shorter route to adopt for constructing a shorter tram line to Karori and Northland and in this connection a most interesting document relating to the early history of the road has just come to light.
This is a petition; signed by 180 prominent citizens of Wellington in the year 1856, asking the Provincial Council to make a road connecting the Te Aro district with Baker's Hill, via Polhill Gully. Baker's Hill is the ridge under which the Karori tunnel passes, but the road which formed the subject of the petition was not formed until some thirty-four years had elapsed after the Provincial Council was first approached by the settlers. The original document, which by reason of the signatures it contains forms a valuable link with the early days of Wellington, has been handed over to the City Council for permanent keeping by Mr W. F. England of Karori and it was produced at this week's meeting of the Early Settlers' Association by Councillor Len McKenzie, whose father, the late Mr T. W. McKenzie, was one of the signatories

how should we record the children of same-sex marriages on our family trees

Birth certificates are probably our most important identity document.
Their purpose is to record legal, not biological, parental status (as in adopted children)
Countries issue amended birth certificates after adoption to reflect the change, but as a statutory privilege, not in satisfaction of any constitutional right (the original record of the child’s biological parents is often preserved, although sealed against public access)

Therefore, how should we record the children of same-sex marriages on our family trees if the tree is made public?
Do we record the biological parents and work back on their ancestors for the descendents of these children who will one day be curious? OR do we record the same-sex couple as their parents and work back on their ancestors?

It would be far too 'confusing' and nearly impossible to add all 4 'parents' and their families and ancestors
