Making Connections Genealogy
Genealogy and Family Research Services
I am an independent genealogical researcher specialising in English, Irish, and New Zealand research, with a particular interest in the history of prisoners of war (POWs) during the Second World War.
I have spoken for over twenty years on many genealogy topics, including teaching all over New Zealand for the Genealogical Research Institute of New Zealand (GRINZ), and presenting workshops for the New Zealand Society of Genealogists and Victoria University of Wellington.
Have you lost your family stories and would like to find out more? I can help you.
