Research Resources

The Branch Library

Over its more than 30 year history, the Hutt Valley Branch of the NZSG has accumulated a wide range of resources for members' use.  These are both local history and genealogy resources, and material to assist Branch members with their family history research more generally.

The Branch research resources are held at the Heritage Centre in the Petone Community Library.  They include books and magazines, CD ROMs, microfiche, and all sorts of other interesting bits and pieces.

Find out in detail about our library holdings and how to access them on our Library web page.

Useful Links

On our Links web pages, we have gathered together some website references that you may find useful for researching family history in:

The Links page is continually under development.  It's not intended to be an exhaustive list, as there are so many family history research possibilities to explore on the internet.  However we welcome your suggestions for additions, particularly in the "Resources in the Hutt Valley area" section.  To make a suggestion, email us here.

Research Enquiries
