Welcome to my user page.[edit]

I really like researching interesting people's lives and I use the collection of the Museum of New Zealand Te Papa Tongarewa as a starting point for my research. My way of working is to have a look at random through the collection and pick something out that interests me. It might be the maker or artist or the item, the donor, or even the people the item used to belong to. I like the way an item from a collection can lead me in so many different directions - from ship wrecks to photographers to philanthropists... Making connections and linking it all up is my area of interest. This is pretty general I know but I get easily bored.

I also believe that physical items hold just as much information about people as written history. I think people rely too much on written research and should look to original sources for information after all "a picture says a thousand words..."
