About Hunting Kiwis

My name is Helen Leggatt and I run Hunting Kiwis from my home in rural Canterbury, New Zealand.

I have always had a love of cemeteries and local history, and have spent 20 years researching my own family’s history in the UK and India.

I ran a gravestone search and photography service in the UK called Ancestors Reunited, even attracting the attention of BBC Radio 4, who interviewed me live from a rural Scottish cemetery at 5am one cold wintry morning!

Since moving to New Zealand in 2004 I have become just as passionate about recording and researching the lives and deaths of early settlers in Canterbury.

I am also able to undertake research in Canterbury for family history researchers who are unable to make the trip to this part of the world.

I am a member of the New Zealand Society of Genealogists and the Families in British India Society.
