The aim of the Australasia Births, Deaths and Marriages Exchange is to provide genealogists with a free resource to share information about details contained on civil and parish records registered in Australia and civil records registered in New Zealand.
You can search and order New Zealand Government records for births, deaths and marriages (BDM) here.

Information available includes: Births that occurred at least 100 years ago; Stillbirths that occurred at least 50 years ago; Marriages that occurred 80 years ago; Deaths that occurred at least 50 years ago or the deceased's date of birth was at least 80 years ago.
