New Zealand Project

New Zealand represents 1.8% of profiles here on WikiTree with over 710,000 profiles created already. You're probably wondering where New Zealand is. New Zealand is an island country in the southwestern Pacific Ocean. It consists of two main landmasses—the North Island and the South Island —and over 700 smaller islands. It is the sixth-largest island country by area, covering 268,021 square kilometres. Wikipedia 🔗

The mission of the New Zealand Project is to support, research and collaboration on profiles of New Zealand people, from 1800 to now. For Māori who were living before 1800 before European settlement, please see the Māori of Aotearoa Sub-Project (Coming Soon!). Also note that due to sparse resources, the New Zealand Project may not be able to help with profiles of people born before 1840.

New Zealand Project Team

The team for fellow Kiwis like yourself is The Kiwi Crew. We participate in all WikiTree quarterly challenges. It's not all about the challenges. We have an invite-only Discord for general chats, place name discussions, New Zealand sources, and our non-genealogy social corner for anything unrelated to genealogy. This is a great place to meet like-minded friends. If you want to volunteer to help keep Wikitree and the New Zealand Project in good shape via Discord, contact Campbell Braddock.

But wait! if challenge events aren't your thing, we have two casual teams consisting of Maintenance and Topic Teams. Maintenance is all about cleaning up profiles, whether writing biographies or fixing error data. The Topics Team currently has two topics you could help with - All Blacks and Politicians. Both topics need your help to source and connect profiles to the world tree. See: New Zealand Project Teams
