I canít visit Ė can The Treasury help me?

We need contact details (name, address, phone number, email address), and some basic information from you (names, dates, location, occupation, childrenís names, church, school) if you have them. This basic information will help ensure we are looking for the correct person and help us avoid giving you information which you already have. If we know which church/school they attended we can check any church/school records we have. Check the searchable data base. If there are specific items on the data base which you would like to see, copy and paste the line/s and include that with your request - and also make it clear whether you want your researcher to cover a wider field as well. Fill in a Research, Fees and Information Form.

Our researchers are chosen because they are experienced in this field. The Coromandel Heritage Trust has a Research Policy in place which The Treasury Researchers are required to follow.

Our collection covers the area from the top of the Coromandel Peninsula, across the Hauraki Plains to Te Aroha and back to Whangamata. Some of the towns included are Thames, Coromandel, Kuaotunu, Coroglen, Whitianga, Hahei, Tairua, Pauanui, Whangamata, Waihi, Waikino, Karangahake, Komata, Paeroa, Netherton, Ngatea, Hikutaia, Turua, Puriri - and more. Your researcher will work his/her way through a list of resources checking them off on a worksheet as they go. This list works from the quickest and most likely places to find information down to the slower and less likely. After the first hour of research you will be contacted to see if you want to continue with more research.

Remember that ...

We only search through resources which are held at The Treasury.

We have a large collection, and it takes a surprisingly long time to check through it. A lot of it isnít indexed yet and isnít on the data base.

The researchers are not at The Treasury every open day so it may take some time for them to check everything. There may be other enquiries preceding yours. They will keep in touch if there are delays. Please remember they are volunteers.

We have had families who we can find NO information on at all. This is disappointing for the researchers as well as for you. New resources are coming in daily. Try again in a year.

Indexing our resources is an on-going project so donít forget to make return visits to the data base.

Information gathered in the course of this research will go into The Treasury Collection and may be used by others, or by The Treasury.

How can you help us?

We would like to have more about your family to add to our files.

Thank you for your research enquiry and happy hunting
