Hi Chris

Thank you for this wonderful website.
I will be emailing you soon because my aunty Lorraine Paterson (nee ROBINSON) would dearly love to make contact with her cousin, the daughter of Elsie (nee Berkahn) and Walter Ernest Robinson. She lost touch with her many years ago.
By strange coincidence, I think that the wedding gown I wore 1975 in Auckland was designed by a famous dress designer related to Elsie Berkahn !
Kind regards.

Your connection to information on this website My great great Uncle Frederick Weaver I belived worked on your farm in 1903
Comments:
I wondered if you had information about the people who worked at the Ruanui Station in 1903/ 1904?
I have three letter from Frederick William Charles Weaver..known to the family as Pat.. who came over from England to work at Runanui. The letters are to his parents, brother and sister and talk about life on Ruanui. He sayes he was a gardener. I also have a newspaper cutting about a social event . Do you have any old records about past employers. I think he worked on the farm for 2 years or more.
Look forward to hearing from you.
Penny

Your connection to information on this website Pupil at Matawai School 1946 - 1948
Comments:
I was sad not to find in the Matawai School teacher list Mr George Mitchell who was appointed headmaster after the "bully" Harry Lund was moved on. Mr Mitchell was a WW2 sub-mariner from the Royal Navy, had an alcohol problem but was a very humane teacher, such a relief to us students after the piggish manner of Lund. He certainly turned my schooling achievements around.

Names and/or topics you are researching William Mitchell/ Isabella Drysdale
Comments:
I think that I am a decendant of William Mitchell and Isabella Drysdale but I lost the connection after James Mitchell and Cathrine Brough... I believe that my great grandfather, grandfather and my father were all William Mitchell's I remember my father said something about being a 3rd generation William Mitchell ... I know that my grandfather had a brother whom was a policeman in Comrie but that is all i know my grandfather married my grandmother in 1936 in Canada so I am not sure if he immigrated here with his father and mother in the early 1900's or if he came on his own in the 20's maybe...still searching but thank you for your site as you have given me a great insight from the documents the church has given us...blessings...Breeze Mitchell

Would love to hear from you,

Hi Chris, I am doing a Heritage Resource for Matawai School at the moment, and the information you have on your site is so unbelievably amazing. You have covered so much of what I have wanted to know, rather than just documents and documents of transcripts etc... you have it in a nutshell! Wonderful work.

Comments:
I am a grandson of Tassie (Alfred Israel) Rhodes and Nellie Clarissa (nee Irving). My mother is Winsome Noeline Munro (nee Rhodes), b 1925, youngest child of the marriage.

Grandad died in 1951, Akaroa, when I was a toddler, but I vaguely remember him. Nana Rhodes d 1975, Akaroa.

Good luck with the project. I may be able to assist with some photos of the Rhodes.
