NZ BDM One-Name Sheets

Free document download links by surname.

(I use Microsoft Office Word 2003, so if you have any problems opening the documents let me know.)

I have gathered, collated, and organised surnames into their birth, death and marriage groups from information found on the official New Zealand historical Births, Deaths & Marriages website.

If you don't see the surname here that you want, contact me to make one up to add here.

Some surnames are too plentiful - like Smith - to create though.

If you find a surname related to one I have provided (often through a misspelling) then let me know and I can add that too.

Tip: the way I like to use the lists, is to piece together whole families by systematically going through the data to see what matches I can find, and it is really useful to highlight those names as I go along.

I try and update each surname in the list at the beginning of each year, as another historical year's worth of data is released by the government as it falls outside their data-privacy criteria:

  • Births that occurred at least 100 years ago.

  • Stillbirths if registered at least 50 years ago.

  • Marriages that occurred 80 years ago.

  • Deaths that occurred at least 50 years ago or the deceased's date of birth was at least 80 years ago.

With the listed registration number you can then order a certificate or historical printout via their website if you wish.
