Response to those who answered my question on gender
Having it pointed out to me that the NZ project is restricted to New Zealanders took me by surprise and upset me. I was born in Zambia but emigrated to New Zealand when I was 12. I became a New Zealand Citizen three years later. In total I have lived in New Zealand for a total of 45 years (12 years and then 13 years in two later periods living in Zambia and South Africa) and as a New Zealand citizen - technically, I suppose I'm therefore, not a New Zealander - one born in New Zealand. I stand corrected and will not presume to do records I'm not entitled to do again. May I ask how I'm to know if I'm allowed to index a project or not? I had no idea, after doing 20,000 entries 10 years ago, that certain projects were restricted to people born in particular countries. Things certainly have changed over the 10 years I've been away from indexing.
To the others who responded, I am very well aware that many names are used for males such as Marion, Shirley etc and that there are females who have male sounding names like Michael and George . I also read the instructions for the project and gathered that if the occupation and other information agreed that you could enter the gender. I was clearly wrong. I feel now i'm 10 years older I'm probably reading instructions incorrectly and should probably retire myself and leave indexing to the younger folk.
I apologise for being an old nuisance. I really only wanted to help facilitate the Gathering for those on the other side of the veil. My mother worked for 60 years on my family genealogy and there isn't a family name available that hasn't been done, leaving nothing for me to do there. This has all saddened me making me feel old and foolish. Again, my apologies.
