New Zealand research by Claire Smith posted on 22 February 2010
Some of the County Councils in New Zealand have been putting searchable databases on their web sites for the cemeteries in their areas. I recently looked at a few of them and below are a few I have copied. The web page addresses are below. Not all have been copied.

This Cemetery also has photos of the headstones:
I have discovered that the wife of the mystery James BROWNLEE in Havelock, was Margaret (Maggie) who died 17 April 1901, aged 29yrs. From looking through the archives of BDMs she could be maiden name WILSON. I have sent for her death certificate to see if it leads anywhere. It appears she is buried in the Havelock Cemetery not near my family, but near to other families from Scotland.
