New Zealand Gotoarrow.png Minorities

Several ethnic minority groups including Jews, Germans, Swedes, Polish, and others help make up New Zealand society.

It's important to learn the history of the ethnic, racial, and religious groups your ancestors belonged to. For example, there are a significant number of compiled studies which you might study such as a history of the Jews in England and eastern Europe, or the Germanic cultural background of Germany, Austria and Switzerland, or the Swedes in Scandinavia.

This historical background can help you identify where your ancestors lived and when they lived there, where they migrated, the types of records in which they might be listed, the archives that hold records about them and other information to help you understand your family's history.

For some minorities in New Zealand there are some unique records and resources available. These include histories, gazetteers, biographical sources, settlement patterns, and handbooks.

For Maori (Polynesian natives of New Zealand) background and genealogical information, see:

The Family History Library collects records of these minority groups, especially published histories. These are listed in the Family History Library Catalog, Place Search, under:
