The Branch is in the process of installing back-issue Branch Newsletters on the Branch website Communications pages, both as an historic record and also to enable Members to check back on past events and articles should they so wish.

The Branch was formed 25 May 1984.

From that date we hold a copy of “Newsletter One” produced late 1984, followed by a few issues up to Feb 1985, then a big yawning gap up to October 1993, from which we have a more or less unbroken run through to the present.

A very small number of our current members belonged to the Branch during some, if not all, of those early formative years, and should they still be holding at least some of those missing 1985-1993 newsletters we would be most grateful if they would be prepared to either donate or lend them to us so that we may extend our website collection.

The dates still required are now on the main Newsletter page, so if you can help us in any way with those still missing in action we would love to hear from you.

If you have hard copies of missing issues, and cannot scan them into a pdf, would you please in the first instance contact:  Derek on 293 1092  to arrange collection.

if you are able to convert them to a pdf, please use  the Contact form to advise our Webmaster of which issues, and arrange a transfer.

We publish a monthly newsletter (January to November), ISSN 2253-4059, sent to all financial members.

Complimentary copies are supplied to a number of other genealogy organisations and the National Library.

Back copies are/will be available on our webpages.

Newsletter one was produced late in 1984 and will be added to our online collection as time permits, as will the more or less complete record from Oct 1993 to those that were already published on our prior website (2000 on).

Do you still hold copies of newsletters from between the inception of the branch in 25 May 1984  and Oct 1993?

We would appreciate scanned copies for inclusion in our online archives on these pages.

Please use the Contact Form to let our webmaster know which of the wanted issues below that you hold and may be available to be scanned.

Derek (293 1092)  is happy to be contacted to uplift hard copies if scanning them is not an option.

Wanted list:

Dates for two newsletters that have survived undated:

a) mentions Chairperson June PRITCHETT and committee member John TROLOVE of Paekakariki

b) date for a 1988 newsletter listing Jan BONNETT as Secretary and Carol PROCKTER on the committee.

All issues between  Feb 1985  and Oct 1993.
