Research trip (3rd of 4)

Research trip

Members of the Te Puke branch of the New Zealand Society of Genealogists set off for a week's work in Wellington’s archives in September 1996. Genealogy gives people knowledge of their own family, but it also provides them, especially the older generation, with a community and a circle of friends.
