Hello whanau

Looking for family tree / family history resources? You have come to the right place… sort of.

It turns out that it is easier to have one source of ‘truth’ for this stuff, so some years ago now, I gave all my files to my eldest brother Ben who kindly uploaded them into the site that he hosts now known as Courageous Colonials. The site is kept current by his daughter Nikki Eagle.

The family history pages on the Courageous Colonials site contain information about various branches and families. Some may not mean anything to you, but many of them are relevant to the Kemps, Gregory-Hunts, Hills, Abbotts, Fairhall, Hill, Colbert, Hutt, Woolhouse, Lomax, Hunt, Blake, Benbow and Ackroyd families.

Of course, there are other families represented there, because the whole point of a family tree is that it grows as it learns new information. The bigger it grows, the more people will learn about it and make connections.

The tree has been renamed “He Tangata” (Tis people!)

Send all of your family details, including just where you connect to this assortment and Nikki, Ben , or someone will eventually get your information in here. Be warned though, that it does take time as everyone leads busy lives and this is really only a hobby….  so dont expect things to happen at the speed of light – or even the speed of sound (but not quite as slow as the speed of decay)

If you have information that conflicts with what is already have on there, then PLEASE: dont be shy about it. Tell them. Let them know.

They have only placed information on there that they have found or been given. There may be questions over dates, relationships, offspring, parentage, pairings and nearly any other thing that you can imagine. LET THEM KNOW >>>>>>>
