About the Website
Welcome to our new website which went live on 1 June 2021. We hope you enjoy looking around and exploring the new features.
NZSG members will see a lot more content once logged in. (Previously the Members Only menu items showed to everyone but had a padlock to show they were locked.) Members can update their own details under "My NZSG - Manage".
To return to the Home Page click on the NZSG logo in the masthead.
Arrow back or changing the URL address to genealogy.org.nz also works.
If you want to update your Members Interests, you can do this under Research - Members Interests - Manage Interests.
If you come across any links that don't work, please email the Webmaster.
There have been a few issues that have arisen since the website went live - we hope the following guidelines will help.
User passwords were migrated across from the previous website to the new. Some passwords were automatically rejected because they were considered to be "weak". The first step is to reset your password by following the prompts through this process. If you remain unsuccessful, please notify us for assistance at Webmaster@genealogy.org.nz
The migration across to our new website has interrupted the link to Discovery. The affected browsers are Edge, Chrome and Firefox; the link works fine for Safari. We are working on restoring this service. Thank you for your patience.
If you are having trouble purchasing something in our Shop and it wants to update your details, make sure both Physical and Postal address are ticked on the Address tab.
Some people have had problems accessing the Kiwi after subscribing. The main reason is related to "filters" you have assigned to your web browser, causing the Kiwi to be blocked with a pop-up message. Check the address line of your web browser as depicted below and select “Allow pop-ups for genealogy.org.nz".
