The Dictionary of New Zealand Biography biographical database was created primarily for selection purposes. As a large store of information about New Zealanders, it has great potential as a research tool.
If you would like to make an enquiry about a person who might be in the database, please search the list below to establish if we have a record. Then contact us with the name or names you are interested in, and we will send you the full record. We are unable to supply more than 5 records per enquiry.
