Family Chart Display

Recently we had the great honour of celebrating a person's 100th birthday. To get the wider family together without it being a funeral was very attractive.

I took the opportunity to display the research I'd finished to the wider family. They'd known I was up to this for years but were content to leave it up to me. I've had such fun.

To make it easy to follow, my son did up this chart for display and it was a hit. The chart was done in Adobe Illustrator and printed professionally A2 size. You might like to copy the format he did it in.




Te Kopuru School Photo 1908

I found this old photo in a second hand shop many years ago. I donated it to a museum. Last year, I tried to find it again in museum libraries but didn't locate it. The photo was annotated on the back with all the children's names. I thought it was quite a find.

Here is a copy since I can't locate the original one sent out to Betty Powell at the Waipu Museum in 2003.
