Kiwi Collection

The Kiwi Collection is a flagship product for NZSG and a powerful online research tool for members. It represents the past and ongoing work of hundreds of NZSG members and projects, and your purchase supports that ongoing effort as well as the Society’s other work.

Whether you’re starting out on your family research journey or you’ve made some progress in piecing things together, the Kiwi Collection will introduce you to resources every New Zealand family historian should be using. It’s your go-to for those missing links that can move you through roadblocks and open new avenues of investigation.

The Kiwi Collection is an online, subscription-based service available exclusively to NZSG members.

What Can I Find?

The Kiwi Collection is the gateway to a vast, meticulously compiled index of 12 million records over 300 record sets, allowing you to locate the records you need and find exactly where and how to access them.

Kiwi Collection is the ideal resource to help you compile your research to-do list before you go any further – saving you a lot of time and helping you ‘connect the dots’ across resources.
