    Can you please tell me if the magazine is available in New Zealand? I used to purchase it from a local book retailer (now closed) some years ago but have not seen it available at least in the Otago/North Otago, NZ regions. Thanks. Regards. Diane Lean

    I am attempting to find information on the life/death of William Leonard Pritchard. born 23 December 1876. NZ. He divorced his wife Jane Coulter Jones Pritchard in 1923 and no details are known of his life after that. Possibly moved to Australia. I am a grandaughter of William & Jane.
