Discoveries at Trinity Methodist Church

While browsing the archives at the Trinity Methodist Church, Napier we came across some amazing family history. It was exciting to turn the old pages of the roll books and church minutes and see the names of our family members there.

Here are some of our discoveries...

my great great grandmother. (Thomas Smith was her second husband.)

and, some christening particulars for Great Uncle John (Jack).

Both Joseph and Harriet are nominated at the church meeting, to prepare for the Synod. 

We saw that great great grandad Joseph concluded a church business meeting on 20 July 1904 with a prayer.
