GPS and a New Zealand Cemetery. What’s the connection?

  1. If this is work of Gareth Winter I take my hat off to him.
    My Grandmother Isobel Wade (nee Burling)was born and lived in Tinui but buried wanganui.
    I have other descendants here also whom I have had a fruitless search for some and now be able to find them.
    Keep up good work.
