Adoption Record
kia ora

Searching for FREE info. on net for adoption record NZ.

I'm wanting to help my partner search for parents signature on record.
We have only just found out MLC minutes that my partner's parents suppose to
adopt a child has died yrs 1962 without issue. We noticed adoption file number written
down on the MLC minutes.
We know, its untrue! Parents never adopted anyone!
No I did not ask MLC. I'm seeking for second opinion from elsewhere first.

What's our next best!

Help me please, correct their error.

Kia ora Sina,

There are two different kinds of adoptions - those done through the MLC and those done through the court. If there is an adoption file number in the MLC minutes, you should see if you can get to see that first. If it is done through the MLC you will be able to find the records of the adoption in MLC minutes books.

If you want to do your own research first, you can access the MLC minutes at Archives New Zealand - you will have to visit personally, sign up - it's free and then get the minutes.

Good Luck!
Nau te raurau,
Naku te raurau,
Ka ora ai nga tangata!
Together we will get there!
