Hi and thanks if anyone can help with any information on my Gr Grandmother Christina Millar nee Jones.
Christina Millar nee: JONES was born on 3 June 1884, registration number 1884/6737 in Hastings New Zealand. She died in 1960 registration 1960/23182 Hastings New Zealand. Christina married John Millar in 1927, registration 1923/2059.
John (maybe Jack) Millar was born around 1867 and died 23 Sept 1955 in Auckland, N.Z
Christinas parents are Alfred William Jones and Selina Jones but this information could be incorrect as Christina is thought to be raised by a Maori family in N.Z. and have parents unknown. There were many siblings in the Tamihana family. These are listed on other genealogy sites and to many to mention here at this time.
Christina also seems to have not married but been a partner of George Tamihana whom she was with before marrying John Millar. So she would have been with George before 1923?.
Family Trees on the net ( and there is a few people with this information)show the above information and my own research but a family member has mentioned it could be incorrect and so it is very important I get my facts right before adding anyone. To my knowledge from a family member there is no birth certificate for Christina Jones. Therefor I could be looking at the wrong Christina Jones ON NZBDM.
There is also a Christina Millar with same birth date but in Tasmania, Australia. This to is showing on other genealogy sites.
I hope someone knows more about Christina and the Tamihanas.
Christina and John Millar had 5 children,, 1 of which was my Grandmother Ellen Tahiti Brown (Birth registration shows the names in reverse) Other children of Christina and John are: Paretahi, Margaret, Mary Awatea, Violet and Robert who was born 1905 and died 1986 in Greymouth N.Z. but this is yet to be confirmed as well.
All the girls were registered in the same year 1930, Its unknown why they are all registered at once. Anymore information about Christina and Johns children and their spouses I have can provide if anyone needs it. With the exception of Robert. Im still researching him as well.
IMPORTANT: I would really like confirmation on the Birth and life of Christina and the Tamihanas. Its very important I get my facts right. I dont even know if Christina and George had any children. I would so appreciate hearing from someone who can directly help and confirm any of the above.
NOTE: Different spellings of the name Tamihana
THANKYOU SO MUCH FOR READING THIS LONG JOURNAL ENTRY.
