JONES, Albert Wallace and OLIVE, Clementina
I hope someone might be able to help me - I have hardly any info and don't know where to start. I have just been told by a relative that my grandmothers (born in Australia) parents were possibly maori. I am an aussie and have no idea about tracing a family history in NZ and was hoping someone might be able to help. All I know is this - my grandmother - PERRY (nee Jones), Gladys May was born in Balmain NSW and her parents as listed on her marriage certificate are JONES, Albert Wallace and OLIVE, Clementina but I have also seen Clementina's name listed as Clementine, Clemtine and Clementina. My grandmother was born in 1897. I have no other information on my grandmothers parents nor do I know any of her family I only know some of her brothers names but they are in Australia somewhere anyway.
