Searching Passenger Lists

The Passenger Lists held by Archives New Zealand:

Passenger List Searches

In a joint project between Archives New Zealand and Family Search of Utah, all the passenger lists held at Archives New Zealand have been digitised and are available through the Family Search web-site. These lists are being indexed by volunteers from the records on the Family Search web site. The indexing is complete only for the assisted immigrant programme through to 1888. The remaining passenger lists are being progressively indexed by name with new entries being added all the time. So if you are initially unsuccessful with a search do try again periodically.
