Find your Kiwi ancestors online

In a world first, more than 20 million family history records, spanning 140 years of early New Zealand history, are now available online. The genealogy website has exclusively released six major digitised records, ranging from Electoral roles and jury lists to Maori Land claims and New Zealand naturalisations.

Brad Argent, Content Director for, says, "This is a big step forward for New Zealand family historians as this is the first time most of these collections have been made available online."

Christine Clement, spokesperson and Inside History contributor, comments that, "These records make it easier than ever before for [New Zealanders] to get online and start uncovering their family history."
