this week's 'Abundant Genealogy' topic is STATE ARCHIVES
... HOWEVER for New Zealand we will call it REGIONAL ARCHIVES ...

New Zealand is an island country located in the southwestern Pacific Ocean. The country geographically comprises two main landmasses, the North and South Islands and numerous smaller islands. New Zealand is situated some 1,500 kilometres (900 mi) east of Australia across the Tasman Sea and roughly 1,000 kilometres (600 mi) south of the Pacific island nations of New Caledonia, Fiji, and Tonga. Because of its remoteness, it was one of the last lands to be settled by humans. Radiocarbon dating, evidence of deforestation and mitochondrial DNA variability within Mori populations suggest New Zealand was first settled by Eastern Polynesians between 1250 and 1300, concluding a long series of voyages through the southern Pacific islands

The population, as at this writing, is approximately 4 million and we don't have States. The country is divided into Regions (which now differ from the Provinces which were established in 1841. These were simply: New Ulster (North Island north of Patea River, New Munster (North Island south of Patea River, plus the South Island) and New Leinster (Stewart Island/Rakiura)

today there are 16 New Zealand REGIONS and within these regions are many Regional District Councils so I had to find a way to condense all these into a workable, not-too-large, helpful, genealogy database
My original idea of an alphabetical list would have turned out too huge so have divided the country into their regions and added all relevant links that I have found to be very helpful in ancestor research which I know will be of help to you too

During my research around New Zealand I have found that all regions are very proud of their settlers and pioneers and have gone to great lengths, some of them, to preserve their history and provide us with as much information, photos etc as possible. I am going to have to admit to a personal favourite. Because of the obvious large amount of ongoing work that goes into the site:

Adopt an ANZAC

I have taken this opportunity to add extra helpful links for New Zealand researching, outside the "Regional Council Archives" usually written by people with an interest in the particular district. The following are mostly online archives, of course, every town and city has wonderful libraries, museums etc. I have spent a lot of time at the Alexander Turnbull Library in Wellington and it is an amazing place. Call in if you're in Wellington. I nearly burnt down the old Alexander Turnbull library in 1973, but that's another story :)
