Merton Public School Registers

Allan Steel has just completed two projects related to the East Otago area and is offering look ups for any member who may have a possible connection. First project is the transcribing of the Merton Public School registers which are held at the Waikouaiti Museum. The school was open from 1872 until 1964. These registers have not been transcribed in the past as far as he is aware. Second project was the identification of around 570 men and women who went to the Boer War, WW1 and WW2 from the East Otago area including Waikouaiti, Seacliff, Merton, Karitane, Goodwood and Flag Swamp.
