When you need to find someone – try google or go directly to A Memory Tree!
A recent case of a box containing human ashes turning up on a Christchurch beach failed to find the person through the official channels, www.dia.govt.nz, but did show up on A Memory Tree.
All deaths that are published in NZ daily papers are recorded on www.amemorytree.co.nz and the friendly freely available searches include all name variations. In a nut shell, if it’s published, we record it.
That includes favoured names, nee names, former names, even nick names.
We’re pleased to be able to have helped the NZ Police when all other official channels failed!
