Topic: Pre-1840 Aotearoa New Zealand Ancestors – Maori, whalers, sealers, missionaries and others

By 1840 when the Treaty of Waitangi (Te Tiriti O Waitangi) was signed it was estimated that there were about 80,000 Maori and 2,000 Europeans living in New Zealand. Was one of them your ancestor? Come along and hear about the early days of Aotearoa New Zealand and what's new in New Zealand research. Pauline will talk about her 4x great grandfather, Captain James Joss, a whaler on Stewart Island.  We would love to hear about your early ancestor. Please let us know if you would also like to present to the group. 

We will be providing the option of either attending this session in person at the SAG Family History Research Centre and Library or online via Zoom.

For those attending in person tea/coffee and biscuits will be provided, and Pauline will be organising a catch up for lunch nearby. 

Please note: A minimum of 10 in person attendees are required to make the option of a hybrid session viable. Please register by Wednesday 17Jan if you intend to come in person as we will need to make a decision about proceeding with the hybrid format on that day.

Those who attend in person will also receive the link to the recording of the session, should they wish to go over anything afterwards.

Skill level:
All     Convenor: Pauline Weeks
