I didn't know there were Stilwell's in New Zealand. Your book must be highly valuable and museums would want it or you can keep it in your family. No one in my family knew their history prior to my 4th great grandparents. I started researching in 2009. The Stillwell's were Anabaptists. I was born and raised in California until age 21, then I lived on Maui, Hawaii during the 1970's. We knew a family on Maui who we heard moved to New Zealand. We didn't keep in touch. Gary and Pam Sutherland. Gary was a jeweler on Maui back in those days. We moved back to California 1979, then we moved to Florida in 1992.
