Our Pioneer Families Register

Te Whare Pātaka | The Treasury’s Pioneer Family Register documents the arrivals of early colonial families.  This register, compiled by one of our many volunteers, includes the name of the ship the family originally arrived on, where possible the date of the family’s arrival, and many other details.  

The Pioneer Families Register is accessible at our centre if you are able to visit in person. Alternatively, if you are unable to visit in person, for a small fee one of our volunteers will be available to search the Register on your behalf.  

If you had early family in this region and would like to include your family detail in our Register please complete and submit the form below.
