Talk:New Zealand Maori Research Ideas
Kia Ora and Thanks for NZ article
Being a transplanted Kiwi and part of the wiki support team, the article on New Zealand Maori Research Ideas interested me. I liked your clear and concise writing style. It helps build a research path for Maori research. My great-grandfather was the LDS mission secretary in the 1880s and served two missions in New Zealand. When baptisms were performed, he recorded the candidates name, their approximate age, their village, and the names and villages of the parents. I did a database and sent it as a gift to the FHL. His journals have been microfilmed and are in the Church History Library. That is another resource of early missionary journals that can be added to the article.
Thanks again for sharing tips on Maori research.
