Marilyn Wightman is the archivist at Feilding & Districts Community Archive, Coach House Museum, Feilding. Family research at archives and repositories round New Zealand showed the importance of these treasure houses of information. Something at the time Feilding lacked. She approached the local council in 2006 and a committee was formed along with three local history groups to undertake the establishment of a community archive. Marilyn has published family histories and is a contributing writer to Kiwi Gardener.
