There are many available records searches useful for locating people and/or personal information. Both public and private records checks are indexed with the majority searchable by name. These can be some of the most effective means for finding someone outside social media and telephone directories. And whilst you may not always find a direct contact, you may discover a lead on which you can move forward to gain that information. Includes electoral rolls, court records and criminal records.
To find additional sources that may assist you with your search, please visit the New Zealand Public Records Index.
