Remember the Jennings Family Tree mystery last year? Well, another mystery has come our way at the Central Auckland Research Centre!
A photograph album was handed into a librarian in Pukekohe, it was found in someone’s flat and rescued before it was put into a skip. It was given to the family history team for identification and preservation. The album is now kept in Sir George Grey Special Collections and is identified as Album #224.

Since August is family history month and we are celebrating families, this seemed to be a great opportunity to share images from this album. We hope that you might be able to help us identify some of the individuals in these portraits.
