New Zealand Troy Family research

I'm currently working on the Troy family history in New Zealand that includes all our distant family relatives. However, getting the genealogical research right takes a lot of time and patience. That's why it will still be a while before I can present the family research to you.

Our whole Jersey Troy family history can be seen on my other website at

I have begun my New Zealand research below. Lots more to come.
