NZSG Projects

The Society has a commitment to the preservation of the nation’s records.  One of the ways we do this is by collaboration with major repositories to ensure that records of importance to researchers of family history are preserved and accessible.  With a national network of members sharing a common interest, we can greatly improve our ability to locate records of importance by producing and pooling nominal indexes and transcriptions. Emphasis has been placed on the following record types:

  • Shipping Records
  • School Admission Records
  • Cemetery Headstones and Burial Records
  • Undertakers Records
  • Funeral Service Sheets
  • BDM Records
  • Obituaries

Each record type has been nominated as a NZSG National Project.

A set of Gen-Guides have been designed to support project teams with establishing their projects, and to advocate for a common quality standard. We have a Project Coordinator who can assist you with tailored resources for each of these areas of study.  Information returned from these projects is incrementally added to each of the national collections.  For the most part, an index is taken from each of these collections and made available to members via the Kiwi Collection.

The Project Register is a database of all NZSG Projects that have been notified to the Project Coordinator. The Register is intended as an information resource in its own right so that there is no duplication of effort, but it also fulfils another role by letting our members know who and where they might go to for information.
