Researching NZ Family History

Graham Lewis - Ready to present
Thank you to Graham Lewis, our Society webmaster and Fellow of the Society of Australian Genealogists for delivering a very informative presentation " Researching New Zealand Family History" in our rooms this afternoon.  

Graham who has been researching his family history since the seventies was born and brought up in NZ and has "lots of NZ ancestors". He has gathered many New Zealand family history resources over that time.

Among the things we learnt was a nifty way to narrow down a search to an exact date of birth when using the online New Zealand Birth Index at . Graham also demonstrated the value of membership of The New Zealand Society of Genealogists,, for those with NZ ancestry.

All members of the small group that attended this event went away with enhanced knowledge to apply to their New Zealand research.
