NZ Cemeteries Collection
The New Zealand Society of Genealogists since 1967 has produced cemetery transcriptions for approx. 1400 cemeteries nationwide.   Most municipal cemeteries are included as well as private cemeteries, Maori Urupa and remote burial locations.

The collection is held in hard copy and microfiche at the Family Research Centre, 159 Queens Road, Panmure, Auckland.  The transcriptions dating from 1815 – 2009 are widely available on microfiche.   An Index to the microfiche is contained in the 2009 NZSG  publication,  New Zealand Cemetery Records – a List of Holdings.

The full collection, including transcriptions received after 2009 is listed in the Library Catalogue.  Go to Members Area>Search the Library.
