Currently researching my local early settlers cemetery here at Clareville. Carterton. NZ.
I would like if at all possible please the following information:
What the family did in their home country.
What ship/port/ they sailed on to New Zealand and year.
Which village they came from, and where in Carterton District they settled.
This is all beneficial in my research.
I hold the plans from the first recorded burial in 1866.
Am able to photograph a headstone for you.
Able to meet up and show you around the area, and of course the cemetery.
Carterton celebrates their 150th Anniversary this year 2007.
March 18th with a Parade through town.
Also able to assist in other cemeteries in the area if the need arises.
Very interested in Soldiers graves from Boer War to WW2 in the Wairarapa, and especially Featherston Military Cemetery, WW1. I have all the headstones on a disc. and a list of the soldiers who are buried there.
I therefore look forward to hearing from you.
