Note – Field Book numbers have 4 digits, by adding ‘0’s at the front. Use 4 digits to search for items, for example:

  • Book 3 is ‘0003’
  • Book 23 is ‘0023’
  • Book 123 is ‘0123’



  • Books are named and arranged in numerical order, grouped by Land District.
  • To narrow your search results, include a Land District identifier from the table on the right.
  • Example search phrases:
    • GS-AK_0270 returns images from Book 270 in the Gisborne-Auckland book sequence
    • WN_0270 returns images from Book 270 in the Wellington land district 
  • Images are numbered in the order they were taken, and do not match page numbers. To find a specific page, flip through a book’s images.


If you cannot find a book you think should be there, click the “Contact Us" button below explaining the issue, we will search the original registers to confirm if the book still exists.
