NZSG's Research Service

The following services are offered to our members free of charge. These are intended to support members who do not have the opportunity to visit the Family Research Centre (FRC) in Panmure or the ability to borrow the resource through our postal service. All of these services are supported by volunteer officers at the FRC.
