New Zealand Records:
The Anne Bromell collection

Covering a period from the mid-1800s right through to the later part of the 20th century, this material will be of enormous benefit to anyone with a connection to New Zealand or even Australia as the Antipodeans had a habit of moving back and forth.

The material contained in this collection was amassed over a 20-year period by the late Anne Bromell. Anne travelled extensively around New Zealand with her microfilm camera, filming records where she found them. Her work forms the basis of the record set gathered here.
