Thanks to Eleanor Newland for this record of her mother!

I have more images and data for this section, but have not had time to work on it. Joseph Beder has shared images and historical materials on Annie Beder Deckston of Wellington New Zealand - one of the earlier settlers of the community. I have found travel documents for Lechovichers heading in and out of British colonies in South Africa, Australia, and New Zealand, in the pre World War I period, in the Between the Wars period (1920s-1930s) and just after WWII.I hope to include them in the next update.
