A resource created by Palmerston North Branch NZ Society of Genealogists It consists of files of documents, photographs and stories contributed by families about their relatives who lived in or near Palmerston North. It was accumulated over a 30 year period, and collated by Noeline Penny for the Palmerston North Branch of the New Zealand Society of Genealogists. The collection also aims to list all published information about these families, including booklets, newspaper articles etc. Initially it was intended to include families living in Palmerston North and its immediate farming environs, in the period 1875-1900. However, contributions have been received for some families further afield in the Manawatū, and some for more recent times.
