I am still working through the CURREEN family tree. I have some notes which was given to me. The notes are written by Gwen Malone. I know that she had written a book - "The Song Never Dies" but is unpublished. I was wondering if you are able to get a copy or can tell me how, I am hoping that it will show me the year or the ship that Peter and Mary CURREEN arrived on.
Hey I remember that picture from somewhere! I think my father had it in his room. Is one of those old guys Peter Norris Curreen? (husband of Mary Herbert) if so can you please tell me who his parents were.
I have enclose some info on Peter CURREEN. I am a descendant from Elizabeth CURREEN their youngest daughter who married George RANKIN.
I am trying hard to locate the ship, the year and the port of arrival that Peter and Mary came to NZ, but I have
hit a brick wall. Interested ti see where you fit in.
