About my project

Welcome to my New Zealand Genealogy web site.

My genealogy project started in December 2001 when I began collecting family history information on my family and my wife’s family (Chris Korte and Katherine Wallace).  Since starting, I have added information collected by others on the wider families to my database (see Sources) – my acknowledgement of their efforts.  The project has three web components for reporting results of research:

  1. A Family Tree database that can be viewed on Rootsweb WorldConnect.
  2. This web site to supplement genealogy information shown on Rootsweb.
  3. Blog posts

This page shows the most recent updates to the family tree, this web site and the blog.

Family Tree

A copy of the family tree information I have collected can be viewed on Rootsweb WorldConnect. Most of the people in my Rootsweb WorldConnect Database lived in New Zealand.  People born since 1930 are listed as “Living” for privacy on Rootsweb. I have not listed sources on RootsWeb. I am happy to provide further information if requested (see Contact).

Please contact me if you find errors, want something removed, or can provide further information. I have a form for family members to submit additional information and corrections by email. You can see some of the on-line resources I use for my genealogy research on the Links page.
