The Ship Clontarf 1858 - 1859 - 1860

Just informing everyone about a wonderful book written by Marolyn Diver in 2011, called "The Voyages of the Clontarf."  Her book is available on Trade Me or from Dornie Publishing.

The blurb on the back is as follows:

"The story of the clipper ship Clontarf:
In her short career the Clontarf made only two journeys to New Zealand between 1858-1860; introducing just under 800 emigrants to Canterbury. But before she slipped beneath the North Atlantic ocean she carried with her the unfortunate infamy of accumulating the worst human fatality from illness alone in a single voyage.

Using shipboard diaries, official documentation, shipping lists and the combined information from the descendants of Clontarf passengers themselves, this is an informative and in-depth record of the ship and her journeys."

I love this book and I would recommend buying it.  It gave me such an insight into what my ancestors went through and even has maps of the journey.  

It is only with Marolyn's help that I have been able to start writing my own immigrant ship books.  She is the founder of the "Ancestral Journeys of New Zealand Series" and I have meekly followed behind her.  She has given many hours of her time to help me and I can't thank her enough.
