About Carolyn & Chris Family Tree
This website was created for the extended family of Carolyn (nee Dow) and Chris Douglas to share details of our family history and family photos. We are New Zealanders (both born and bred in Dunedin, Otago, New Zealand) and our family connections extend across the world. We would like to thank all the cousins that we have found in the course of our research who have generously shared their family knowledge and photos.

If you have any family photos (or copies of newspaper clippings, certificates  etc) that you would like added to the site, we would 
 be pleased to receive them.  For photos please include details of who is in  the picture and the approximate date it was taken. Email them to us on our new email address which is carolynjuliedouglas@gmail.com.

If you see any information that needs updating please either email us or leave a note on the guest book.

Surnames shown as (*****) e.g. (Jones) means that we haven't yet located the  birth surname of the relative concerned.

If you are interested in the Brinsdon family line, I have another TribalPages site at  http://brinsdon57.tribalpages.com/ which contains the most up to date information.

September 2009 - there is an issue with TribalPages and the hyperlinked names attached to photos - many of these are incorrect. I am working to fix these and at the same time reorganising into more online albums.

October 2009 - a number of new exciting records are now on line - London certificates and the 1911 England and Wales census so I am adding these as I find them.

August 2010 - a special thank you to cousin Margaret Todd who has generously shared photos and  certificates from the Todd family (Jane Todd is Chris' grandmother). We were especially thrilled  to see photos dating from the mid 1800's and to put faces to names.

April 2013 - two significant books have been published recently relating to our family history.  The
 first is a Brenssell family book, "Waldkappel to Whare Creek" which details Chris's grandparents forebears arrival in New Zealand. A link to order this excellent book written by Laurie Brenssell (Chris's cousin) is on the right hand side of this page. The other book is "Meet me at Begg's" by Clare Gleeson. Carolyn's grandfather Frank Campbell was General Manager of Begg's and features prominently in this very interesting book.

July 2015 - Manchester marriage certificates are now online at Ancestry.com - find of the month  was the marriage of Alexander Campbell and Rosannah Hughes nee Mulligan, who are Carolyn's 3x  great-grandparents.

January 2022 - We (Carolyn and Chris) have had our DNA tested at Ancestry.com and have also uploaded a copy to MyHeritage. We are enjoying making contact with new cousins and verifying the research that Carolyn has done.
