Just found a cousin in New Zealand need a bit of help
« on: Sunday 30 July 23 15:23 BST (UK) »
Hi I have never done research in New Zealand,  can you tell me how easy it is to find records on line.
 Do you have the same information on wedding and birth certificate  as we do in the UK.
 
If a person born in 1911 in Auckland was put in an orphanage can you access records.

All I have is a name  John Anderson  date of birth 1911 to go on.
can any one give me a clue what sites are available .

kind regards Sue

I have New Zealand ancestors, and I use Ancestry World Wide site, which is a paying site. I have a yearly subscription, but not sure if you can do individual look ups if you don't have this.

Is that his original name, or his adoptive name?

There are 9 John Andersons registered as born 1911

NZ archives, scroll down a bit and open the Auckland one. Scroll down for a few links in the period.

Hopefully someone with more knowledge than me will come along soon and be able to direct you more effectively.

Hello,

I have asked a moderator to move this to the Main Board, at the moment this is sitting the Resources and Offers Board.   


Cheers

Hi Sue, and welcome  ;D

Can you please us what information, if any, you already have on John ANDERSON?

Anything you have will help us a lot (names of parents, for instance?).

Regards,
