Another New Zealand family history publication

I’ve added a fifth title to the article listing family stories of New Zealand Mathesons.  ‘Fac et spera — do and hope — the Mathesons of Fourpenny’ traces the Scottish origins of the author Monica Kidd (nee Matheson), who was once the genealogist for the New Zealand branch of the Clan Matheson Society.

Monica’s account details the New Zealand lives of her grandparents and their descendants, and is a good example of the value of writing down family stories to record them for future generations.
