About page

Photos and information are organised by family on this site. Use this page to navigate to different families.

The people in the table below were settlers in New Zealand from Europe. Depending on stage of research, some families have relatively detailed information while others have incomplete information. All these people are ancestors of Katherine Wallace or Chris Korte.

Select a person from the table below to see notes on them, their wife and children. Where photos are available, I have included. Addtional photos (larger) are on Family Photo pages.
