New Zealand’s Ministry of Internal Affairs has launched of a new Web site that offers online access to New Zealand’s historical birth, death and marriage records. The historic data available for you to search is limited so that information relating to people who might still be alive, can be protected.
Information available includes:
- Births that occurred at least 100 years ago
- Stillbirths that occurred at least 50 years ago
- Marriages and eventually Civil Unions that occurred 80 years ago
- Deaths that occurred at least 50 years ago or the deceased’s date of birth was at least 80 years ago.
Searches are free, and certificates can either be purchased as a digital image to be downloaded immediately, or as a paper certificate sent through the mail.
