Thames Women & the Suffrage petition Part 2

Well, have you had a chance to search for your relatives in the Suffrage petitions (mentioned in the last post)

Did you notice that the site is interested in gathering more information on the women who signed the petition. The 'more' link goes to a page where extra information can be added. Members of the public are encouraged to submit further information via community contributions or you can email us at info@nzhistory.net.nz

A name of interest for me, was that of my Great-Grandmother, Honor PASCOE.
