New Zealand records added to Ancestry

New Zealand Electoral Rolls

New Zealand Electoral Rolls

A large collection of more than 20 million records has recently been added to Ancestry covering the period 1842 to 1981. The records include electoral rolls, Maori land claims, jury lists and naturalisations and have been digitised and fully indexed.

The New Zealand records do not yet have a separate country location under the Search tab. To view the records available, select all databases from the home page and type new zealand under keyword.

Ancestry library edition is available within the State Library building and in many local public libraries.

  1. Since posting this blog Ancestry has updated its site. There is now an Australia & NZ tab under ‘Explore by location’ on the Search page. Another change is that the Australian records have been divided up into the various states and territories.
