Overview of Overseas Resources

Everyone will, at some point in their genealogical research, find family that came from outside of New Zealand. It may be very recent or a long time ago. These resources give you a starting point for your research. They are not intended to be definitive, as there is already a number of useful resources available. Note: The following are available to NZSG members only. Not a member? Join here.

Please note that some websites provided in these resources will require you to have an account, others will require an account and a subscription.

NZSG members get free access to Gale Newspapers and free downloads of digital content on Discovery (The National Archives UK).
