"The Cyclopedia of New Zealand was published in six volumes between 1897 and 1908 by the Cyclopedia Company Ltd. Each volume deals with a region of New Zealand and includes information on local towns and districts, government departments, individuals, businesses, clubs and societies. Biographical entries frequently include the subject's date and place of birth, the name of the ship by which immigrants arrived, spouse's name, and the number and gender of children born to a couple."

Dominion Geordies in WW1 In this project, we’re looking to recruit volunteers to research the lives & wartime service of ‘Geordies’ in the armies of Australia, NZ, Newfoundland & Canada during WWI. Our ambition is to recruit a crowd of volunteers to tackle large-scale research projects, thereby collecting information that will help us to understand why ‘Geordies’ emigrated & how these journeys relate to their wartime movements & even post-war relocations of settlement.
