Tracking back pre NZ
William Slaney (Grandad) was married to Margaret (don't know surname.) Arrived in New Zealand but we think the rest of the family carried on to Australia. I think Mum found some Slaneys in Australia about 30 years ago! Mum (Velma Slaney) was born in Tapanui (NZ)1912 but that's about it! We suspect he may have landed in Bluff. There is a street in Bluff called Slaney Strett but it may not have been named after him - could be coincidence! Any help appreciated.
