NZ BDM death records

I posted an explanation of these records back in July. I didn't realise then that when searching for deaths, if a person was 80yrs or older when they died then we get their birth date as well, rather than their age if they died after 1972.

This has been a great help to me lately. Some of the deaths I've been looking for were only a few years ago and I was delighted to get the extra information.

  1. Thanks for this, I haven't bought any copies of BDM records for a long time because of the cost but this is worth knowing, this could be of real help as you have already found.
