Oh DRAT !!!   ;D     

I had just typed a lengthy explanation re: the "District Keys" (index books referred to earlier by mckha) ... hit a wrong button and lost the whole lot !!   So, glad you've swung by again mckha and clarified the situation.   ;D

To add .... the "District Keys" are designed to work only with the microfiche-formatted NZ Birth and Death records ...  and these can be found also in (usually) larger libraries and some other repositories.
[Note that the registration numbers appearing at the NZ BDM website for these events, are not compatible with the District Keys.   NZ BMD allocated new numbers  ::) to all their records at the time these went online. ]

[   *  ancestry.com (subscription) records for NZ Births and Deaths, show registration places for events but only from about 1873-74 onwards.    Important to note also -- that the registration place isn't necessarily the same as the actual place of birth or death (- a printout version of the registration record, is the best means of verification). ]

Is there a way to check the location without ordering the printouts?

Hi pergamond

I'm at my local library tomorrow (Monday) and happy to check microfiche/district keys for you.

Will of course need name of person you seek (and any other helpful information you hold).
