New Zealand Society of Genealogists

The purpose of the New Zealand Society of Genealogists (NZSG) is to assist members with their family history and genealogical research by:

  • actively providing opportunities for the development of genealogical skills and studies;
  • representing the interests of the members in the wider community; and,
  • promoting the preservation of information

Further information on the NZSG can be found in Gen-Guide 1, Introduction to the NZSG.

There are many branches that meet regularly and Local Area Contacts around New Zealand.

There are several Special Interest Groups for regions around the world and for special subjects (genealogical computing).

From 25 February 2002 the Family Research Centre is open to members.

All members who have email can participate in a members-only mailing list to discuss issues about their society.

All members receive a bi-monthly magazine with a wide range of articles for beginners and experts.

The newsletter "Keeping In Touch" is sent to all society branches, interest groups, officers and contact persons. All members can view it online.
