New Year, New Look

Happy New Year to all my subscribers!

Hunting Kiwis has had 21,683 visits since launcing in October 2010 and we are now seeing around 2,000 visits each month. We’re happy so many have had the opportunity to see their ancestors’ final resting place and many of you have requested photographs in return for generous donations – thank you.

I thought I ought to sneak in a January post before the first month of 2012 slips away. I’ve been busy looking at ways to improve the blog and, if you head over to the Cust cemetery listing, you’ll see what’s new… full headstone images, just as some of you requested. It will take some time to update all the listings while adding new ones, so bear with me!

I hope 2012 sees you all advance your family history research and, if you think there’s something I should include on Hunting Kiwis or have ideas on how the site can be improved, don’t hesitate to contact me or leave a comment on the blog.

Happy Hunting!


About HuntingKiwis

A recent B.A. Honours (First Class) graduate of the University of Canterbury in New Zealand, I'm currently studying for my M.A. (Hist). 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.
