The reunion was held in Christchurch, New Zealand, on the weekend of 26/27-May-2012.

95 people attended and had a very enjoyable time. Copies of the reunion book 'CORCREENY TO CANTERBURY - The Upritchard Family in New Zealand 1862-2012'  were handed out during registration. There was plenty of time to meet and talk, followed by lunch and a presentation on some key points about the family history, a reunion photograph and further opportunity to talk. Photographs and other memorabilia were on display. Thanks to the venue staff for all their helpful support and very flexible approach.

The following day many of the attendees went on a field trip to the old family homestead at Loburn, where the current owner, Rona McKenzie, made us most welcome, helped by some friends. We then went back to Rangioa and visited Joseph and Mary's grave and those of other family members.

A CD of reunion photos has been sent to attendees.

There are a few copies of CORCREENY TO CANTERBURY' still available ; contact reunion@upritchard.com if you would like a copy. Corrections, additions and updates will be posted elsewhere on this web site. Please contact reunion@upritchard.com if you have information to contribute or would like additional information. Copies of the family tree in spreadsheet format are available to bona fide family researchers.
