     HOME OF THE AMERICA'S CUP

             I am researching my folk who
             
                migrated to New Zealand.                                                                                                                                                                

     They came from LANARKSHIRE and 

                  ABERDEEN in SCOTLAND

    St.Just, Penwith, in CORNWALL: Brough in WESTMORLAND:                                             

             Ware, in HERTFORDSHIRE  and from LONDON.
