Getting started with Niue research
Niue is an island nation located in the South Pacific Ocean. It is commonly known as the "Rock of Polynesia." Natives of the island call it "the Rock." Although self-governing, Niue is in free association with New Zealand, meaning that the Sovereign in right of New Zealand is also Niue's head of state. Most diplomatic relations are conducted by New Zealand on Niue's behalf. Niue is located 2,400 kilometres north-east of New Zealand, in a triangle between Tonga, Samoa and the Cook Islands. The people are predominantly Polynesian.

In order to make this wiki a better research tool, we need your help! Many tasks need to be done. You can help by:
On the Internet, go to Familysearch.org. Choose the Library tab and then Family History Library Catalog. Type in Niue. Print the items you are interested in. Next, type in the name of the village where your ancestors came from to see if any records were made on that level. We should print out the lists we get and then click on the record types that interest us.
We can also use a Film/fiche number search and look at the descriptions of other microfilms, all of which contain information in Niue: 1886336, 1886337, 1886338, and 1886339 Items 1 – 14, 795720 item 2, and 928558 item 6.
