About the Māori Land Court Minute Books Index (MLCMBI)
Quick and easy access to an index of over 1100 minute books between 1865 and 1910. From the Taitokerau, Waikato-Maniapoto, Tairawhiti, Waiariki, Aotea, Takitimu, and Waipounamu Māori Land Court Districts. Index only.
The Māori Land Court Minute Books contain judges’ notes on court sittings from 1865 to 1910. These sittings covered court proceedings to do with succession and ownership of land, as well as, in some cases Māori to Māori adoptions. They contain a good deal of whakapapa information and may be useful for whakapapa researchers to consult.
