KDGS Research Night & New Zealand news

Hello Everyone
Research night this Monday March 16 at 7pm in our KDGS library at Hawthorn Park.  The topic this month is 'Luck with your Irish'.
 
New Zealand birth, marriage and death indexes are now available online.  As in many other countries access is restricted to protect the privacy of individuals, so you can only search for births that occurred over 100 years ago, marriages that took place over 80 years ago, or deaths registered over 50 years ago (or where the individual was born over 80 years ago). Nevertheless, it's great to have such an important source online and - best of all - it's free to search the indexes.

Have a great weekend.  Marlene
