I am trying to trace my family tree on my fathers side. I have only been able to find information up to my great great grandfather.

I ordered the death certificate and have found his parents names, but nothing was flagged with those names to lead me further

My g g grandfathers name was Charles Reid and he was born in 1879 and died in Palmerston North on 1st August 1939. He was married to Amy Clara Lyford 12 Jul 1882 to 25 Mar 1965 also Palmerston North.

The death certificate for Charles reid lists his fathers name also as Charles Reid and his mother as Louise Reid (nee Pedwell), this is all the information I have.

If anyone has anything more that would be greatly appreciated
