Waiuku

 
 

Waiuku is located at the southernmost extension of Auckland's Manukau Harbour. It is quite some distance from the city, but very close to the outlet of the Waikato River where it empties into the Tasman sea.
For some unexplained reason if figures in many of the genealogies presented here, and in particular for families that are represented in the Far North. At this time (2006) all the data presented is sourced solely from family histories, so reversing the usual sequence on the site.
If you have additional information to share we would be very pleased to hear from you in the hope that the record can be extended. Should I personally get to revisit the town I will take my camera, as I have done with so many cemeteries now....
