SELVADURAI, Karen: Help with my whakapapa
I would like to trace my great, great grandmother's maori heritage. This is all the info I have from her death certificate: Her name was Elizabeth Coe (maiden name). Her father's name was John Coe & her mother's maiden name was Burrows.
She relocated to Sydney, Australia to marry an Australian called Benjamin Crumpton in 1880. She died at the age of 34 years on the 10th November, 1891. They had 4 children - William, Charles, Albert and Henry.
I would be very grateful for any assistance with my search as I am very interested in finding out about my family's maori heritage.
