Photograph of great-great-great-grandparents

Beverley Keall, a member of the Kilbirnie branch of the New Zealand Society of Genealogists, shows her grandchildren, Eva and Oliver Galvin, a photograph of their great-great-great-grandparents, Elizabeth and Thomas Snook. Elizabeth arrived in Nelson at the age of two in 1842, and married Thomas in Nelson in 1867. Family photographs and stories are often the starting point for the researches of family historians.
