BIRTHS, MARRIAGES AND DEATHS
from Early New Zealand Newspapers
and other Sources
The birth, marriage and death notices that appeared in early newspapers often
contained more information than the revelant certificates. Therefore they are worth taking a look at
when you are searching for information about your family.
Births, marriages and deaths of family members living in other countries, especially Great Britain,
often appeared in New Zealand newspapers.
