Project Instructions This collection contains biographies of individuals whose public service to New Zealand was considered noteworthy. The biographical format will necessitate some reading in order to identify fields available to key. Please be aware of who is being keyed into what field. "Son of" or "Daughter of" etc., are not sufficient to determine relationship. For example, within the biographies great grandparents are often listed, but are not being keyed. We will be keying name with rank AND prefix, as well as birth and marriage information. We are also keying father, mother and spouse with spouse father and mother.

Images with photos will have primary name keyed.

Some biographies will span more than one page and may not all be included in a downloaded image set. Key all available information based on the part of the biography that appears on the image you are keying from.
