Screen capture of FamilySearch.org web site

If your ancestor went to New Zealand, you may wish to check FamilySearch www.familysearch.org out, as it has just added 358,395 probate record images from 1878-1960.

The records were created by local courts throughout New Zealand regions. An index is available on the Archives of New Zealand website http://www.archway.archives.govt.nz/ which will give the probate file number associated with a name. Some records at the beginning of the file sets are often out of numerical order. This collection is being published as images become available.
