    Albertlanders and New Zealand

    Hey there,

    I'm trying to do some research into the Albertlanders, a group of non-conformists who emigrated from Britain to New Zealand in the 1860s, but I'm struggling to find any information about them from before they left. Things like where they lived, family ties, occupations.

    Does anyone have any clues?

    Any help is appreciated!!

    Hello readwheeler20 and welcome to FTM

    With so many families sI googled and google images turned up trumps

    it's just one family I'm afraid but from Nottingham...more history on the blog for James Berry Hoyes who married Elizabeth Morley.

    I did see the passengher list for the Matilda Wattenbach, have you researched any of the families?

    Just wondered how you are tackling it all

    Thank you both so much! This is brilliant!

    I've been having trouble finding primary sources on the settlers, I have the passenger list for the Hanover and Matilda Wattenbach, but just starting out with a name has proven difficult (especially when trying to look through census records!). Perhaps I am too stuck on a certain methodology and need to change my approach.

    These websites are invaluable and have given me a much needed boost

    Inger family on the Matilda W. ...again from Nottingham

    There are reunions for family members so it might be worth writting a few emails, here's one
