Sharp/Healy Family History
Research into the Sharp and Healy families continued in 2023. Additional pages have been added for Thomas Healy's siblings - Patrick, Honora, Mary and Catherine. A great deal has been compiled about Patrick and Honora and how they came to be in New Zealand. It appears Catherine stayed in Ireland but Mary emigrated to the United States. You can read all about this from the Sharp/Healy Family History link. Also updated the story about Eleanor Rose Sharp who married Selwyn Francis Edge.
Dale Family History
My COVID-19 pandemic New Zealand lockdown project for 2020/21 was researching the Dale family history, after whom I am named. This project came about after a mini Frank-Dale family reunion held in Matamata in early March 2020. From there a huge amount of information has been discovered and compiled about the wider Dale family, including Frank Dale's parents, brothers and sisters, and the Stow family. You can read all about this from the Dale Family History link.
Pearson Family History
Towards the end of the 2020 lockdown I moved my attention to the Pearson family. Minnie Pearson married Henry Xavier Rush, my great-grandfather. Unfortunately she died in 1949 before I was born, but I did briefly get to know Henry Xavier as a child before he passed away in 1959. I have documented the Pearson family tree and written up a story about the Pearson family which you can look at from the Pearson Family History link.
McLean Family History
My final project for 2020 was to document the McLean family. Flora Ann McLean married Frank Dale. Using Ancestry family trees and family sources, I have created a webpage and files documenting the McLean family who came from Scotland to Rakaia. Hector and Flora McLean arrived on the s.s. Dunedin on 3 July 1874. They had six children, and Flora was the 5th child and 4th daughter. You can read their story on the McLean Family History link.
