Phone Books

Today we received a boon to our family history resources - 14 Southland phone books. Now and then, people ask us where their ancestors lived. We usually check the old NZ Postal Directories however there were no numbered addresses in those days. But in the future, these phone books will be invaluable to find where someone lived.

We still need more phone books though...If you have the following years, please consider donating them to us. We'll give them a good home!

Every year before 1983; then 1984, 1985, and 1989.
For the 1990s, we need: 1990, 1991, 1992, 1993, 1994, 1995.

We're open Wednesdays and Sundays, 2pm-4pm, and by request. Your comments are always welcome!
