Why would a young girl be sent overseas?
Hello there. I'm trying to find out anything I can about my grandfathers mother. All I know is that she was a red head like me, her name was Josephine Victoria May O'Connell and that she died at age 26 in 1916 in New Zealand, leaving my grandad an orphan.Theres no record of her being born in NZ, so I'm wondering if she was sent there from Ireland? But that made me wonder, why would a young girl be sent to NZ between 1890 and 1908 (the year she got married)?
Any help would be great thankyou.
