A valuable source of historical information, this directory contains the names, addresses and occupations of literally thousands of people who lived and worked in New Zealand in 1930.

Covering the whole of New Zealand there are over 2000 townships, boroughs, cities and districts covered. There are street directories (not as we know them today, but house-by-house listings of head-of-the-household), for Auckland, Christchurch, Dunedin, Invercargill, Wellington.

Names can be found in the following sections sometimes accompanied with additional information:
  • manufacturers of English goods for export to New Zealand
  • banking and finance—bank managers
  • legal—judges and magistrates, court officials, coroners, crown prosecutors, sheriffs, barristers and solicitors, Justices of the Peace
  • ecclesiastical—clergy
  • insurance—company administrators
  • educational—administrators, tertiary educators, head teachers, private school teachers
  • medical—Otago University School of Medicine, medical associations, medical practitioners,
  • hospital administrators, dentists, chemists
  • pastoral and agricultural
  • municipal—county, town and borough clerks, harbour masters, road and river boards
  • government directories—elected members, ministers and government departmental administrators
Directories are one of the most effective ways of tracing members of a family, especially tradesmen. Many small businesses needed to ensure the public was aware of their activity and one of the better ways to do this in an age before media dominated was via a directory. The value of directories as a research tool is enhanced when no census material is available.

High quality scanned images of the whole of the original book. This CD has been bookmarked for easy navigation, and pages can be searched, browsed, enlarged and printed out if required.
