Hi, I am looking for information regarding Anabella Preston, my ggg- grandmother. Anabella (aged 16) married John Carlson (age 37 - of Sweden) in Hawera, Taranaki, New Zealand in 1885. She subsequently had 7 children before 'disappearing'. Looking for any relevent info. Her parents were James and Rachel Preston (born Spence) of Pukekohe, Waikato, New Zealand formerly of County Armagh, Ireland.
I'm looking for my biological father, a man by the name of Norman Preston. I understand he came from Scotland. I don't know what area of Scotland. He was born around 1941, give or take a few years. I understand he was a seaman (possibly merchant) in the early 60's. He was posted in New Zealand for a period of time around 1963. The information given to me is that he is not very tall around 5'3 or so. I would very much appreciate any information anyone can give me. Thanks
