New Years Honours: genealogy

From The Weekend, 10:30 am on 2 January 2016

Kathleen Hansen became curious about her own family history, that curiosity has lead to many years of detectrive work and, in the New Years Honours list, a Queens service medal. It's for services to historical research. The Hansens were one of the first European families to live in New Zealand. She's been able to trace them right back and in turn has told stories about the family in 6 books.
