Re: Lewis

Do you know where Bentley is/was? I don't recognise the name, can't find it on a map, and it's not in my 1952 NZ Guide. The Kaipara Harbour is a very large body of water, with a huge coastline.

What are you calling "late 1800's"? Can you be more specific?

It might be that you're dealing with a spelling variation on LEWIS, which means it could be difficult to find the right entries at BDM Online - Historical Records ( as it only deals with exact spellings.

You may have more success looking at the older microfiche indexes, where you can see a whole page of entries at a time, so variations on LEWIS would be easier to find. You'll find the fiche in libraries and genealogy groups around the country, and if you're a member of the New Zealand Society of Genealogists (NZSG, you can use their Research Service to have an NZSG volunteer look up their copies for you, for free.

Then, of course, some births were never officially recorded. :-(

Hope this helps. :-)

Kind Regards,
