a very big thank you to margael for correcting this posting for all Marbeck researchers and later generations who may one day go looking for their ancestors

Not all the people you mention were born over 100 years ago and there are a number of errors in your records. The family is a small one and the 'hits' you refer to will have been because of one family's business. Your records are not the most comprehensive in N.Z. - mine are. My cousins and I consider these postings to be an invasion of our privacy. Because you will not remove these records please, at least, correct them.
Ailsa Janet lived in Glendowie, Auckland, not Tamaki. Died 28 August 2006. Florence Eileen, wife of Alfred, was the daughter of John W. and Mary J. Wade. Alfred died on 14 Feb 1978. Alfred Murray died on 4 April 2009. Emmanuel's son Harold died in 1988, not 1941. Emmanuel did not live in Mangere or Tamaki - replace these with Greenlane. Arthur Marbeck (son of Emmanuel) was Captain until October 1942 (couldn't have been July 1943 as he was killed in action in April of that year). The "Mention in Despatches" was posthumous which should be in brackets after - it has a different meaning. Harold Marbeck was aged 80 when he died, not 79. Florence Marbeck (nee Nightingale) was born in 1871. Florence Eileen Marbeck (nee Wade) was born on 28 August 1893. Jean Mary Marbeck's husband Ivan was aged 63 when he died, not 61. Joseph Mareck should read Joseph Marbeck and his wife Florence Nightingale was born in 1871, not 1872. Mary Marbeck was born in 1842, not 1843. Mary Ellen Marbeck was born in 1856, not 1857 and needs to be corrected under her husband William's notes. In the same notes, Mary Ellen died on 25 September 1940, age 84 (not 6 January 1926, age 83). She and William are buried in the same plot 108, not two plots. Cecelia Gladys - her maiden name was Ramsay, it is not spelt with an e. It appears incorrectly in notes for her husband Arthur born 1907 too.

Presumably you have collected information from various indices and not from original sources.

I repeat, "the great deal of interest in the name" will be because of one family's business (now sold) and the ongoing use of the trading name. I strongly doubt it is genuine interest in the very few people with the name.

I look forward to your response.
