SHIPPING AND PASSENGER LIST
NEW ZEALAND
The information on these pages is for genealogy research only. It may be linked to but not copied in any form without the owners permission

 

New Zealand being a relatively young country, it doesnt take many generations before most of us have to find where we came from, what ship and when.  Important things to know before begining searching.  
Know the year they settled in NZ, this can be calculated off the death certificate. It states how long they have been in the country. What area of NZ they settled in is usually a good indication of what port they docked.
Many of the ships made many journeys in different years to different parts of NZ so to save time searching passenger lists it is helpful to know all you can.
There are many sites that feature shipping lists and Passenger lists, but many are missing.
If you are lucky enough to be in a city with a good geneaology and research section of your library or your local museum this would be a good place to start or your local museum.
