Welcome to this web-site!

My name is Nancy McLaughlin. I live in the South Island of New Zealand, and have always done so. I am a Cantabrian. Our home is in the countryside north of Christchurch, known as "The Garden City".

My ancestors mostly settled in these parts during the period 1840 to 1865; here they married, built their homes and raised their families, most of them large by the standards of today.

For almost 35 years I have happily researched the lives and backgrounds of our familyís immigrant ancestors, and am pleased to share with anyone who may be interested, the details that have emerged, and continue to emerge, thanks to the power of the Internet.

These were adventurous people who left their friends and loved ones in Britain, to make their homes some twelve thousand miles away. Maybe they are also your ancestors?
