NORWAY: Norwegian ancestors in New Zealand?

Dear FamilyTreeCircle Members,

In the 1870s a period of assisted migration began from Scandinavia recruiting settlers from Norway, Sweden and Denmark. Enticement to settlers was the promise of free passage and 10 acres of land in New Zealand.

General Reading Material

The final resting place of the original Scandinavian settlers to NZ is in the Norsewood Cemetery, Hawkes Bay, New Zealand.
