Hi

I know it is nearly a year since your post and i hope you still check on this site. I have found the New Zealand Information that you wanted though by now you might already have it, anyhow here goes.

Edward George Edwards b. 1875 June Quarter in Auckland, Folio number 567

Martha Jane Donald b. 1876 December Quarter in Auckland, Folio number 2957

Their marriage, i would presume to be in Auckland was in 1897, Folio number 1260.

Their son:-

Leonard Samuel Alexander Edwards b. 1903 March Quarter in Auckland, Folio number 46

He married:-

Mavis Gertrude Hill in 1927, Folio number 06459

I know you can order any of the certificates for these through the NZ government, i think they cost about $26, i am not sure if they can be done online though you can print out the order form, if you need any further help, please ask. Here is hoping that you get this. Sorry i don;'t know the website address off hand.

I can't tell you about siblings unless you have any family names they might use as Edwards is a common surname and in NZ they don't quote the mothers maiden name until the 1960s.
