What does the Index include?

The Wellington Genealogy Index is a BDM or BMD index of the Family Notices published daily in the Wellington newspaper(s) since 1999.  Earlier records have been sourced and added by request. 
The index includes Births, Deaths, Marriages, Anniversaries, and In Memoriam notices.

The Index also incorporates family notices published in the Wanganui (2001->) and  Taranaki (2003->)  newspapers.   Sue King's index of the NZ Herald runs from January 2009 through till April 2012.

There are some school magazine roll records and shipping passenger list records. 

These records are compiled, maintained, and made available to you for the purposes of genealogy and family research.

The database is updated daily with the Wellington notices, so there are always new records added to the site.  However, there is a delay in the loading of the Wanganui and Taranaki newspaper notices.  Please check again at a later time.  
If you need a notice that is not showing in the Index, then please email me.  I will locate the notice in the "yet to be loaded" papers, and then load it into the Index.

I recommend MyHeritage logo - build your Family Tree online, and match with others around the world

The Smart Matching feature links your tree with other published trees.  It is amazing how this feature really accelerates the building of your tree - it truly is fantastic!
