And those of you with Kiwi blood flowing in your veins: now you can search New Zealand birth, death, and marriage records online:
“Welcome to the Birth, Death and Marriage Historical Records website, where you can search New Zealand Government records for births, deaths and marriages (BDM).
The historic data available for you to search is limited so that information relating to people who might still be alive, can be protected. Information available includes:
· Births that occurred at least 100 years ago
· Stillbirths that occurred at least 50 years ago
· Marriages and eventually Civil Unions that occurred 80 years ago
· Deaths that occurred at least 50 years ago or the deceased's date of birth was at least 80 years ago.”
Searches are free, but downloading a record or getting a paper copy is going to cost you:
