As a starting point, have you tried www.FreeBMD.co.uk for your mother's death date and Aunt's birth date.

These are given as quarterly cycles.

UK certs. must have risen in price tooooo, last few times I paid Stg.6.00. And I have a lot of wrong details, so it is not cheap.

Have you enquired at the W(h)anganui Library, Christchurch had free access to Ancestry.com before the quakes, which is more powerfull for info than the UK site.

Are you Welsh? we have a recent friend from Wales, Government employee before she retired to NZ to be with daughter.

Don't worry about age, my late Aunt was doing family history up until 95, she passed away in her 100th year.

Boy if I had only listened to her, it would have saved me a small fortune in British pounds in years gone by, as it was me who paid for her genealogy pros.

1911 Census, where it shows my mothers age is blurred. Cannot tell if it is 11Months, 1 year or 1yr 11m. Aunt I am fairly sure as to death but $29 for a Birth cert, this will give me her birth place & parents.

Look at answers in your post above. PJ

PJ, Aug and Sept 2011 paid direct through FreeBMD $nz18.71 and $nz18.97 respectively.

Have been through Tony too, think there is an extra charge to make sure of person's details.

Would you like to send details of your mother through email addy in my user details and I will try and see what it says.

Regards,

Lurking.

Ps. off out to lunch now, wifey's bd.
