Author, Christine Clement has often been asked how to find when an ancestor came to New Zealand. This set her off on an exploratory path a number of years ago putting together the different schemes, periods and times to find out just who the people were coming at the different time periods and why.

This booklet is designed to make readers think beyond the square to see what else was happening in the world that may have led people to New Zealand.

Australia and New Zealand's history is linked as far back at 1788 and trans-Tasman migration began a little later with whalers and sealers, often with convict crew, from Sydney.

A shipping and migration bibliography and a list of basic New Zealand genealogical sources have been included for further reading, and this second edition has been updated to include all the latest resources.

  • Migration to New Zealand is very informative

    Posted by John Soppet on 2nd Oct 2018

    Christine Clement has put in a significant amount of research into this booklet. She says it is designed to make readers ‘think beyond the square’ . This it does very well and provides insights into why immigrants to New Zealand came and where they went. Her prolific references are a good source of how they got here.
