Its a fair bet to say that the Boards.ie forum is the go to resource for countless subjects and interests, within Ireland and beyond. The diversity of topics is incredible, and it's great to know that fount of knowledge is there for all.

Whenever I've got a new problem that needs solving, my first thought is regularly 'What do the good people of Boards have to say?'

I have an access problem, so here I am to see if anyone can help. I wonder would anyone with an Ancestry subscription mind looking up Edward Mohan in the 1914 New Zealand Census?

I don't see the 1914 census but I see an Edward Mohan in the 1914 Electoral Rolls living at 31 Dixon Street, Wellington Central. He was a labourer.

Excuse the typo- I went looking for census records and ended up with electoral rolls. Thanks for looking this up- is there any further info i.e. age, country of origin?

No, it just gives his name, address and occupation.

There is an Edward Mohan listed in the 'New Zealand Army WWI Nominal Rolls, 1914-1918' and his father is given as M Mohan in Drogheda.
Died in France in 1918?

Presumably this is him in 1901.http://www.census.nationalarchives.i...treet/1566472/

Yes, that's my guy. When he enlisted in 1917, he said he'd been living in NZ for 14 years. He was a marine fireman before the war, and I have him on some shipping records in Australia in 1909, but nothing between then and his first attempt at enlistment in 1915.

Oh I just saw your edit, yes that's him before he went away across the ocean

Thanks very much! FYI I have his birth cert & service record, and I'm looking at shipping records around Aus/NZ at the minute.

You can order his death cert from NZ.
https://www.bdmhistoricalrecords.dia.govt.nz/search

There is a record showing he left a will too, but I'm not sure how to get that.

One of these kind folk might point you in the right direction: https://www.raogk.org/lookups/region/new-zealand/

Hey thanks for these. I have his will, it was in the middle of his service record. I'll look up those two links- thanks again!

What am I missing here?

https://www.google.ie/search?ei=F6fL....0.N2ThVmwrzEs

Where do I get tickets? Which section is the gig in? Who or what will be racing? Are they diversifying?
