Happy Mother’s Day. From our family to yours.

May Update, New/Updated NZ Death Records.
Have checked about 20 of my ancestors in this data base and the place of death shown for at least half are incorrect. The actual town/city in most cases is wrong, and the associated province/district is also wrong. Two examples, Hunterville in Auckland, Brunnerton in Wellington.
Have pointed this out to Ancestry, but they decline to take any responsibility for this as the data was supplied by NZ Govt. I suggest that users treat the “Place of Death” with a lot of scepticism. I firmly believe Ancestry at least should challenge the suppliers of the data, and to explain the errors.
