This is a second-hand copy of the book Our Lesser Stars: Twelve New Zealand Family Biographies edited by Colleen P. for the New Zealand Society of Genealogists.
From the blurb:
The twelve essays collected in this volume were selected from ninety-seven entries in the New Zealand Society of Genealogists' sesquicentennial family biography competition.
J. E. Traue, Chief Librarian of the Alexander Turnbull Library, in launching the competition, said: “We, the generation of the sesquicentennial, salute the generations before us by placing them in their context, and making their experience a part of the permanent record. Their bodies have gone, but their memories, their activities, their contributions deserve preservation.'
While celebrating the lives of particular families, these essays offer a fascinating study of life in the New Zealand of the nineteenth and early twentieth centuries. They will provide a valuable tool for researchers and make a major contribution to our social history.
Condition: this is a used book with some wear around the edges not unusual for a book of this age. The pages have a few dog ears and one or two strains, but these are minor and the book is in otherwise good condition.
