Dictionary of New Zealand Biography biographical database

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.

Names of people on the DNZB biographical database

An alphabetical list of the names on the biographical database is attached as a file download.  You will find both a word and a pdf version of this list.
