  • We have had a birth certificate sent from Nottingham England for my father which we could never obtain previously. On this it says that Richard Anderson was my fathers father. I can't find any record of my Nana marrying Richard, but we can confirm that she came out from the UK as a Mrs I M Anderson with a baby Anderson aged 1 along with two McGee sons aged 11 and 9 on the Ruapehu 27/7/1919. If anyone has any further information about this we would love to hear from then. We are not hopeful as it looked like Richard lived with maybe a sister who was also not married. Kind regards Mike
