Discovering my whakapapa

My mum's full name is Anita Maria Boyd, she was born in Christchurch, New Zealand on the 11th of February 1977.  

One story that has come down through her family is that my mum's great grandmother married her husband quite late (mid 30’s) because, when her father was dying, she promised him that she would stay and look after her mother.  This meant she didn't have my mum’s nana until she was 41. 

Of all the things Mum learnt from her parent’s some of the most valuable were to save money, buy a house and how to drive.
