You may be aware of the following excellent sites but just in case here they are.


1. The Wellington Independent published many interesting things to the geneologist including passenger lists for ships carrying immigrants. These are usually published a day or two after  the ship arrives. One can type in a year and then month and then the day in that month to browse the paper for that day. It covers the years 1860 to 1874.

2. Immigration, shipping,  land grants and juries.

3. A superb site where you can navigate around to find ,ship photographs,, Click on Passenger Lists,,34 Shipboard diaries,,and much more from 1800 to 1900.

Click on the tabs to the left of the book to find everything.

The NZ Government  papers past site where one can browse newspaper articles from 1839 to 1932. The adverts are really very interesting as well as wonderfully helpful to anyone researching social history in that period.

Have fun!

Best Wishes
