MyHeritage: Michael O’Toole’s genea-journey

Michael O'Toole

Michael O'Toole

Our genealogical journeys begin in varied ways.

MyHeritage member Michael O’Toole’s interest began with a box of family photos and pages torn from a family Bible.

Michael, 59, was born in New Zealand and lives today in Sydney, Australia, with his partner Dianne and daughter Grace; his mother, Enid, and sister, Susan, live in Queensland, Australia.

Active in the apparel and textile industry for most of his life, including Levi Strauss New Zealand, he’s had his own product development and importing businesses.

In addition to family history, his wide-ranging interests include rugby, motorcycle racing, cricket and big game fishing. He enjoys international travel and is looking forward to a UK trip to visit his ancestors’ towns and villages in Nottingham and Leistershire.

Michael wanted to trace the history of his New Zealand O’Tooles.

I had very little knowledge of them. My step-grandmother- just before she died about 10 years ago - sent me a box of photos and family pages torn from a bible, so I had something to start from.

He began by Googling “O’Toole, Invercargill New Zealand.”
