Far North Pioneer Register
In 2011 the Far North Branch launched their Pioneer Register project to retrieve and preserve details of the early settlement of our area by collecting data about the pioneers who settled here before 1900. For the purposes of this register, Far North covers all the area north of a line drawn between the Hokianga Harbour on the west coast and the Whangaroa Harbour on the east coast.
After launching this project locally we are now taking it a step further and would like to encourage all family historians who have qualifying pioneer ancestors to fill in the form. The privacy of contributors will be respected; the original forms will be held securely and will not be publicly accessible. We would greatly appreciate your help in bringing this project to the attention of family historians in your area.
Far North Pioneer Register forms, and guidelines for completing them, can be downloaded online from the Far North Branch page
