Family History - Miss Rimmer

This week, we had a couple from Auckland asking about their relative, Miss Alice Rimmer, a singer/musician/teacher from Auckland. Her forteit was opera and sacred music, and she came to Invercargill in 1912 to teach. She performed at the annual Otautau Methodist Church concert at the Town Hall in May of that year as well as at the Methodist Church in July. Interestingly she also taught singing and music in Otautau. She was not long in Invercargill and returned to Auckland. If you know anything about Miss Rimmer, please get in touch with us. Thanks!

We're open Wednesdays and Sundays, 2pm-4pm, and by request. Your comments are always welcome!
