Work in Progress Update

I am back from some time away from the earthquakes and am now finishing up Waddington Cemetery and Kimberley Cemetery.

Work will soon begin on Greendale Cemetery.

Thank you to Hunting Kiwis subscriber Michelle Cook of Christchurch, New Zealand, for shedding some light on some of the un-marked graves recently discovered at Waddington Cemetery. I will add the details of the burials to the Waddington Cemetery page soon.

A recent B.A. (Hist) graduate of Massey University in New Zealand, I'm currently studying for my M.A. (Hist) at the University of Canterbury in Christchurch, New Zealand. My focus is on social history, particularly the late-Victorian colonial social environment and those often-overlooked characters that lurked among settlers - the remittance men, swaggers, misfits, and wannabes.
