BOOK - Migration to New Zealand: A Guide for Family History Researchers
By Christine Clement
Published by Unlock the Past, Australia , 2014
Printed and bound in Canada by, Milton, 2015

Softcover...16.50 (C$)

Author, Christine Clement has often been asked how to find when an ancestor came to New Zealand. This set her off on an exploratory path a number of years ago putting together the different schemes, periods and times to find out just who the people were coming at the different time periods and why.

This booklet is designed to make readers think beyond the square to see what else was happening in the world that may have led people to New Zealand.

Australia and New Zealand's history is linked as far back at 1788 and trans-Tasman migration began a little later with whalers and sealers, often with convict crew, from Sydney.

A shipping and migration bibliography and a list of basic New Zealand genealogical sources have been included for further reading.
