Hi. Does anyone know where I can look up passanger lists for arrivals to New Zealand? I'm trying to find out when my ancestor Edmond Foley came to NZ as I don't have any info on where he was born etc so thought this might help. He was probably born in either England or Ireland around 1850. He is listed in NZ electrol rolls as a settler so I know he wasn't born in NZ. I just don't know where to sorce passanger lists for NZ.

There are a number of sites in New Zealand where you should be able to access information about arrivals into New Zealand. e archives.govt.nz is a good place to start. It is a real minefield as you will be aware. You might need to pay for the inforamtion like a lot of the sites are charging these days. I myself am trying to find what ship my grandfather came on to NZ in 1895, it is like a needle in a haystack.

Hi again
Also the site TradeMe in NZ has a very good community notice board but you need to join the site to access the board. It doesn't cost anything to join the site. There is a genealogy link on the board and the people are very helpful there, they helped me to find a lot about my line I am researching.

Passenger Lists to NZ are scanned and indexed from 1855 on FamilySearch.org. Exceptions are those getting a free passage as shareholder in company bringing emigrants.

Have you tried Passenger Lists to New Zealand.freepages.genealogy.rootsweb.ancestry.com
which will give you a long list of possible sites to try. I have found Auckland City Library-Passenger Lists very useful.

Hi thanks Joyce, I will look into the P and O ships. I haven't done that before and haven't had any luck. Thanks for the tip.
