NZSG Members only:

Discount offer for FindMyPast (Australia) – discontinued, but NZSG do advise members of assorted discounts, eg they have recently (Apr 2018) announced access to DNA Webinars via their website, and discounts to MyHeritage DNA kits, which ordering via the link members have been sent in the latest e-kit will benefit the NZSG coffers.

NZSG Rules Review:

Our governing body, the New Zealand Society of Genealogists, underwent a major revision of its rules in 2015 resulting in these revised rules registered as at Feb 2017.

As a Branch of the NZSG we do not have rules of our own, so are governed by the NZSG rules.

Details are available to NZSG members  from their website, but as the rules impact all of our membership, not only those belonging to NZSG a copy is included here.

Kapiti Genealogy is officially the Kapiti Branch of the NZ Society of Genealogists (NZSG).

However, membership of the two organisations is separate, with many advantages in having membership of both.

Under the current constitution of the NZ Society of Genealogists, only those members of the Branch who are also members of the NZSG

  • may be nominated as, nominate or second the nomination of, a candidate for election to the committee
  • vote on any resolution at the AGM, or any Special General Meeting.

Your membership card therefore shows your membership status as either NZSG or Associate.

This distinction makes absolutely no difference to your treatment within the branch, eligibility for services provided, or your ability to volunteer in helping run the branch – only to the two points above.

The NZSG constitution is currently under review, and the relationship with Branches is likely to change.

We do however need to keep our current records up to date.

If you belong to the NZSG, please take a moment to review your profile (need to be logged in), and ensure that we have your NZSG membership number recorded accurately.

Likewise, if you no longer belong to the NZSG, please remove your membership number from your profile.
