I have found this website very useful for searching for Maori marriages between 1904 and 1959 as it can be searched using only the first or last names.  I would recommend you search using a variety of spellings as often the officials writing was so bad people transcribing these records for us could not decipher it.

Kia ora for that - I have added it to the links directory and we have started to extract the names to create lists while still referring people to that link for more info. It is interesting that most of the names on the site that are listed as surnames are in fact firstnames, so we have made changes accordingly.

That link gives a 404 error now and the link from the marriage lists also does. Anyone know the current URL? 🙂

They changed it to a test site which is live and now have a new URL

Varcoe's New Zealand Marriages Index

Search Maori Data

You used to be able to choose a year and view all of the Maori marriages for that year, but now they are limited to just 30 records. You can still do a search for a person though.

We will update our links within the next couple of days and will put up the lists that we have part formatted that were extracted before those changes.
