This is a spot to ensure we capture all the new Zealand McColl's
The Southland branch of the tree was started by Duncan McColl who arrived from Scotland in the early 1900's. A baker by trade he settled in Wairio and Nightcaps where he and his new wife Catherine O'Grady started a bakery/grocery shop.
Hi I am not sure if you have had any help/replies. And where you are based? But on a site in NZ called TradeMe we have a wonderful community on the message board. People in all fields ready to help anyone. There is an amazing genealogy forum, also if you go the the message boad and side panel on left you can type in information and chose how far to go back like 24hrs or a week or a year. They have a very large Nighcaps thread there and locals on it are wonderful. Hope this might help Anne
