My ancestor William Will was the editor of the Auckland Weekly News up to his retirement in 1904. He died in 1908. I was wondering if you had any more information about him. Was his death reported in the paper ? Is there a picture of him ? He migrated from Scotland where I live to NZ in 1864.

I am restoring a south Island racing Yacht "Pastime". there was an article in Weekly News about her on 19/11/1886. I want to find her original sail number.

I am a high school student looking for a newspaper article on the Influenza Pandemic 1918 for an assessment.

In 1950s everyone still called it "The Auckland Weekly".. our copies were at least third hand and the total recyclers we were, it ended up doing service as TP.
