This course is for beginners, or those who haven't searched for long. It focuses on New Zealand and overseas records. The course is hands-on, so you'll have time to find your own family using some of these resources: Births, Marriages, and Deaths entries; Electoral Rolls; Probate and Wills; Newspapers; Police Records; Shipping information; Census data; Parish registers; land records; convict records; maps; and whatever else is appropriate to the search.
You'll learn how to record your findings using hand-written pages or computer programs to save it.
