We've had two family history research enquiries lately.
Corkhill Maternity Home
We had an email requesting the date that Louisa Corkhill's maternity home on Elles Road burned down. We've explored a few avenues but not have come up with a specific date yet. If you know, please contact us, and we'll forward the information.
George A. & Rebecca Wohlman (or Wohlmann)
George owned the Railway Hotel for a little while then went into farming. George died in 1899, and Rebecca in 1925. They are buried in the old Otautau cemetery. If you know of this family, please get in touch by emailing the Museum.
We're open Wednesdays and Sundays, 2pm-4pm, and by request. Your comments are always welcome!
