Event details

Local government records are often concerned with property and property owners. If a person did not own property, then they may not feature in local government records.

However, there can still be traces of a life to be found in the records, and this presentation examines the South Auckland records to discover migrants who came to New Zealand in the 1920s.

All Central Library events will be live-streamed regardless of Alert Level however, if Auckland is at Alert Level 1, attendance can also be in-person.

Presented by: Auckland Libraries
