March 2016 Recipients
Waipu Heritage Museum preserves and presents the unique Scottish heritage of Waipu, whilst communicating with descendants all over New Zealand and the world. They received $2,633.50 to purchase two laptop computers.
Scottish highlanders arrived in Waipu over 150 years ago and their story of migration and settlement has been preserved in the area ever since.
The computers will be used to develop the museum’s descendant and genealogy databases of those settlers, continuing to help the local community and visitors discover and celebrate their heritage and history.
