Waihi and Districts Settler Register
This project is gathering family names of people who settled in Waihi and surrounding areas in the early days. Many early Waihi people have descendants scattered worldwide.
Due to the growing interest in family history, Waihi Arts Centre and Museum Association (WACMA) is recording known names onto a museum data base called PastPerfect. It is hoped this will assist with research queries and reconnect families.
Can you help provide some family history information?
If you have ancestral history information that can help us with the Settler Register, please download our Waihi and Ohinemuri Pioneer Family Register Form.
