I am looking for relatives of these two people. They were from Christchurch, New Zealand. James originally Ireland,

I have both their death certificates and know they have family at date of death (1959 and 2000 respectively).

Two sons and 2 daughters each with Hector being a son of James. I have DOB's for both of these people and know who they married but am trying to fill in the missing pieces in their tree and hopefully liviing relatives.

Thank you

Have you tried "Search all Trees" under the Search button above.

If you find a possible match you can contact the tree owner to see if you have a connection.

I suggest you delete the automated message about "looking at their tree" and write your own message outlining who you are looking for etc.
