    3. Hi Christine, According to the NZSG CD "New Zealand Marriages 1836-1956" (http://www.genealogy.org.nz/Sales_11.aspx?CategoryId=11), Harold ROBINSON married Beatrice Margaret ROBERTSON in 1940 (folio 1940/02322). There are no further marriages for Beatrice on the disk, under either surname. It could be that she didn't legally marry, or the marriage didn't take place in New Zealand, or it was after 1956. There are annual microfiche indexes covering the later years, which you may like to check. The fiche are found in libraries and genealogy groups around New Zealand and in many repositories overseas. You can purchase copies of older registrations at BDM Online - Historical Records (https://www.bdmhistoricalrecords.dia.govt.nz/Home/). The site also has links for ordering more recent registrations for those who have an iGovt registration (which is fairly new and many people don't yet have) Regardless of age, be sure to get the printout, not the legal certificate, for family history purposes. (I explain why at http://archiver.rootsweb.ancestry.com/th/read/NEW-ZEALAND/2010-04/1272342580) If you don't want to order online, or are dealing with more recent events that aren't on the historical site and don't have an iGovt registration, you can order via ordinary mail- go to Births, Deaths & Marriages (BDM, http://www.bdm.govt.nz/), click on the link "Family History Records" down the left-hand side, then click on the link "Request death, marriage, civil union, and name change certificates". Scroll down the page to "Post your application form..." and click on the link "Request for a Certificate (BDM 93 D, M, C, or N". Now you're at http://www.dia.govt.nz/diawebsite.nsf/wpg_URL/Services-Births-Deaths-and-Marriages-Forms-Fees-and-Information-Brochures?OpenDocument#five where you can choose the appropriate form, download it, print it, fill it in and send it off with your payment. If you are a member of the New Zealand Society of Genealogists (NZSG, http://www.genealogy.org.nz/)enquire at their Certificates Collection before making purchases at BDM. If they're holding what you're looking for, it is much cheaper. I don't know much about NZ adoption laws, but I'd be surprised if you could find out anything on such a recent adoption (if indeed Joseph was formally adopted) without being either a parent or the child of the adoption. DRINKWATER isn't a common name in this country. There are only 57 results in a search of the online phone book (http://whitepages.co.nz/). You could write to some/all of them to see if you can find Joseph or his descendants. If you have access to Ancestry, you could check the NZ electoral rolls to see if you can track Beatrice and her new husband, and then Joseph when he turned 18 or 21, or whatever (the current laws say you must register to vote when you turn 18, but I don't know how long that has been the case - certainly before I turned 18 in 1983). Ancestry has NZ electoral rolls from 1853 to 1981. If you can get your hands on a set of the microfiche indexes you could also look for Joseph's birth in the 1940s, to find out his full name. You should be able to order a copy of his birth printout using the folio number from the fiche (note that folio numbers are not the same as the registration numbers used on the historical web site), which will confirm you've got the right man. ROBINSON is a much more common surname, so there may be more than one entry in the right time-frame. In which case, use the folio number to check which office the birth was registered at - one may be more obviously likely to be your Joseph than others. The District Key should be on either the first or last fiche for that year, and it lists which folio numbers were used by each office (they were filed quarterly, sorted by office, then assigned their numbers, very handy!), or look for the District Key booklets produced by NZSG which are often found near the fiche. If you can't access the fiche, you could ask here on the list if someone could search for you, or if you are a member of NZSG you can ask their free Research Service to look for you - that's an excellent use of your membership fee. Hope this helps. :-) Kind Regards, Wendy Howard All readers please note - I have no connection to these people. *** Please reply to the list *** -- Kaiwaka, Northland, New Zealand http://freepages.rootsweb.ancestry.com/~wendyh65/

    3. Ah, I see the confusion, I think. Hawkes Bay is a region (of land), as well as a body of water. It stretches far inland from the bay itself. If you look for Takapau at Google Maps (http://maps.google.com/) you will see to the west of it is the border between Hawkes Bay and Manawatu-Wanganui. (http://maps.google.com/maps?f=q&source=s_q&hl=en&geocode=&q=Takapau,+New+Zealand&aq=0&sll=37.0625,-95.677068&sspn=44.744674,93.076172&ie=UTF8&hq=&hnear=Takapau,+Hawke%27s+Bay,+New+Zealand&t=h&z=12) Norsewood, to the west, is in Manawatu-Wanganui. Takapau is in Hawkes Bay. Perhaps you were also confused by the fact that Takapau is in the Central Hawkes Bay DISTRICT, which is in turn in the Hawkes Bay REGION.

Following the death of a close family member, I was surprised at the charges levied by the local newspaper for posting just a small obituary. The same applies to birth, engagement, marriages notices et al. It made me think through the whole 'public notices' thing and I created FamilyNotices.org which is an on-line repository for all such, with no fees or charges to view, search or post. Unlike a newspaper this has the advantage of being world-wide, free and doesn't get thrown away! Please feel free to help yourself and post anything which is relevant and appropriate - and it doesn't have to be current. Details of 'Auntie Millie born in 1896' is just as relevant as a modern-day wedding notice. If you like it, please tell your friends, for anyone is welcome to post good news or sad news. .........& if you don't, just tell me!
