Family History Society of New Zealand Inc.
Trevor Lord speaking at our last meeting in the new rooms at the Elmwood Park Bowling Club - 83D Heaton Street
During the week, the committee and other volunteers undertook a small fundraising exercise - preparing advertising envelopes for AVO New Zealand.
Last weekend the Society had its annual Field Trip, this time to Nelson. It was a wonderful weekend with visits to historic buildings, walks, special morning teas, talks on a variety of subjects and a cemetery tour where we saw first hand the restoration work undertaken by the hard working Friends of Wakapuaka Cemetery group. Special thanks must go to Simon Courtney for organising this wonderful event.
Time for a well earned cuppa. Some of the ten strong team who helped out at the January working bee.

It was a delightful ceremony. Jill was supported by her family.
