This is the start of my blog which aims to explore and discuss the genealogy resources for Thames, New Zealand. At the same time covering aspects of Thames history in order to give you an idea of what life was like for our families who settled the Thames area.
We can easily set about collecting names as we construct our family trees, but how rich they become when we take the next step and build up a picture of what our ancestors lives were really like. Where did they live? Where did they shop? What did the town look like? Plus many more things along the way.
I will be showing you what information I have on my Thames Genealogy Resources website, while also exploring what information is available at other sites and places.
