Have just got hold of 3 new CD's (from Colonial Books) full of information for Thames and the surrounding area.
I will be collating/printing some of these sections, then indexing and placing at The Treasury, Thames.
New Zealand Nurses Register 1903 - 1920:
an excellent resource that gives, Name, training and service details, plus residence.
Remember there is a major collection of NZ Gazettes at The Treasury, if you want to see the actual book and search other years.
New Zealand Medical Practitioner Register 1873, 1882-1920:
as with the Nurses register a great overview of service and current residence is given.
WWII Ballot Lists:
a great wealth of info on men throughout New Zealand, Thames names appear to under the Paeroa district.
