Hello everyone. I am helping a friend out with his Ryan family. From his grandmothers birth cert (born in Westport NZ in 1889) I have ascertained his great grandfather was born in Arthurstown. I wonder if anyone is researching Ryan in Arthurstown can you contact me. In particular, his great grandfather was Thomas Ryan, who immigrated to New Zealand, prior to 1877 when he married in Westport NZ to Elizabeth Farmer, who is from Talbot in Victoria, Australia. Thomas was born about 1839 according to his daughters birth cert.
