New Zealand Herald: The killer that claimed more lives than WWI

New Zealand Herald: The killer that claimed more lives than WWI. “For decades, most of the influenza victims’ graves in Wellington’s Karori Cemetery lay neglected and overgrown. Many people lay in unmarked graves, while some had been disinterred and their remains put elsewhere as no one had paid for their grave or marker. Now genealogists have created a new website… which documents the 660 flu victims who are buried there. The genealogists have researched and documented 160 of the victims’ lives in intimate detail.”
