I haven't blogged here for a long time. There are many people who are distant relatives who have read these pages, taken information from them, and without bothering to share theirs in return. I've always been generous with what I have learnt, and in some cases have been fortunate to speak with and get to know a few other generous people. But they are not in the majority. Hence, there are many broad themes explored here, but without any real detail, as you'd find in my personal archives.
Where some people have been silly enough to copy and paste some of my unverified research, most of it has since gone on to be proven several times over, whilst other elements have proven to be errors. So when I see those errors copied and published elsewhere, it's always very obvious that it was written by someone selfish, and it's not worth my time to give them the updated details.
For an up-to-date body of work that I am currently publishing, mostly unrelated to my family history, see http://www.koorihistory.com
