Your request on a very wet Saturday in Auckland had me searching through
boxes in the back of my study. Quite fun!! It appears that I cannot help
you too much with your search for Alexander James Boswell. I will send y ou a
copy of my tree which your request has forced me to make!!
I note however, that I had an uncle Alexander William Boswell
There are many repeats of favourite family names. William, Charles and
James seem to be common Boswell names - so be careful!!

I have fairly good family records - some from the Boswell Society in
Auchinleck, Ayrshire, Scotland ( we visited in 1970) and also, more recent ly
(mid 1990's)from Karin and Duncan Boswell of 7 Orihau Tce, Eastbourne. Kar en
did a lot of research on the Boswell Family in NZ and ended up with very
extensive records. I think Karen has since died, but may be still worth
trying that address.

Please do not hesitate to get back to me if I can be of any more help.
You have my email address and my phone number is Auckland 576-7824.
Regards, Paul Boswell


George married Dorothy Jean Hotter, daughter of James Goodson Hotter and Nellie Lind, in 1935. (Dorothy Jean Hotter was born in 1911 and died in 1985.)
