Welcome to a forum for family information on who's who through a large family tree, birthday reminders from the tree, photos, articles, recipes, and more.
The family are members of the greater tribe from James Robertson Munro who immigrated to New Zealand from Scotland in the 1800's. If you feel you are a member of this tribe, please feel free to make a request to join (use the "Request membership" link just to the left).
If you know the email address of people on the family tree and would like to invite them, please do so. As they say, the more the merrier. You can either use the suggestions in the list that is lower left of this Welcome message, or use the 'Invite more family' link above.

My Gran (great-grandmother). She used to make lovely little lemon tarts and had glass-fronted cabinets in her kitchen. Her cat Peter was black and white and was very fond of the fish that Gran bought him at the local shop on Dominion Rd. We used to love to play with her treadle sewing machine in her sunporch and run around in the garden with her deceased husband's hand mower, chopping the leaves that had dropped from the lemon tree into tiny pieces. Another favourite was looking through the numerous old greeting cards that she kept in a drawer at the bottom of a free-standing wardrobe and my sisters and I scaring each other witless about what was at the bottom of the dark staircase leading down to the cellar. The most common expressions I recall her using was 'Fancy' and 'Fancy that' (both said as an expression of wonderment), whenever she heard a tidbit of gossip.
This web application looks to be a way better place to gather family than our site started way back in 2004. Unfortunately that web application stopped being supported a few years ago, so we have been looking for something much more capable and this looks to be the one.
So we are looking at upgrading this site to a paid version to give us more possibilities as follows.
Unlimited family tree size. Presently limited to 250 people and we are already over this.
Unlimited photos and videos. Presently we are limited to 250 MB which is about 100-150 photos and will be used up very quickly once people start adding photos.
If we pay for 5 years, we get a 50% discount and cost comes down to less than $US5 per month.
Anyone who can help out with this will get kudos from family so if that's you, please leave a comment on this news article with details of how much you can help.
Glenda & Sid were house-sitting at a large house overlooking Port Chalmers, the Otago Harbour and Dunedin city. They had 2 cats to look after (never seen) and one almighty black labrador called Ali. He was a black torpedo who harried McDuff to death, tried to eat Milly, attempted to kiss you on the face from a standing position and dived into the decorative rockpools every 10 minutes. It sounded like a washing machine going.
As it was Glenda's birthday we went out to lunch at the Carey's Bay hotel which is just round from Port Chalmers where the "Sun Princess" was berthed temporarily. A lovely lunch with bubbly, seared scallops, lamb shanks and a beautiful view of Carey's Bay out the window.
