Eileen Barrett-Whitehead


Eileen worked for the Waitangi Tribunal for many years but has now retired. She still has a passion for historical research, however, and loves helping local family history enthusiasts give context to the lives of their forebears by doing social history research. Family history doesn’t always get a good rap, but it can throw up some really interesting stories and insights! She also does occasional research relating to the acquisition of Māori land by the Anglican Church in the Wellington Diocese.
