Faces from the past: My great, great grandmother, Marianna Rydzewska

Marianna (nee Rydzewska) SCHULTZ This beautiful photo used to hang high on the wall in the front bedroom at my great grandparents home in Stratford Street in Gore.

In July 1872 Marianna (age 13), her parents and her siblings Johann…

Happy Fathers Day !!!

I am unsure about the rest of the world, but today in New Zealand it is Father's Day, a day we celebrate and remember, and also thank our fathers for all they have done for us. My own father died when I was seven so I have no real recollection of spending a Father's Day with him, but I’m sure he has spent every Father's Day watching down on us from Heaven. Instead, my childhood memories of Father's Day lie solely around my paternal grandfather, Robert ENGLISH. He lived in the house right…

Faces from the past: My great uncle Alex

Alexander Andrew SCHULTZ, date unknown but possibly taken during or immediately after World War 1 I have just recently acquired boxes and boxes of old family photos, which as a keen amateur genealogist is something I am really very excited about. In time I want to share them with as many family members as possible, so as a starting point I thought I would share some on my blog. Amongst the photos were these three which have been identified as being of my 2x great uncle, Alexander Andrew…

Looking back: New beginnings in Gore

I recently acquired these two very old photos. The first time I glanced at them I had no idea of where they were taken or who was in them. But the more I looked at them the more familiar they seemed to me until one day the penny dropped; they were taken in the town that I am so familiar with, the town that is a part of me and where I feel most at home. These photos were taken in the town of Gore, and this building is in fact the beginnings of the large department store called H & J Smith’s…
