A holiday to New Zealand earlier in the year provided me with a few such opportunities. The first was a visit to St Joseph's Catholic Cathedral in Dunedin and St Joseph's Catholic Church in Queenstown.

The obituary of Daniel William Woods states that he was the builder of St Joseph's Cathedral, Dunedin.

A trip to Queenstown and a walk uphill to visit St Joseph's Catholic Church which was consecrated in 1898.
I believe (but yet to work out the exact connection) that Daniel was related to John Joseph Woods who composed the music to New Zealand's national anthem, God Defend New Zealand
