In December 2009 Bill and Glenys Chadderton celebrated the completion of their mammoth task of digitising 270,000 pages of shipping lists held at Archives New Zealand. The lists include about 8 million names and cover the years 1840 to 1972. They record the names and details of people who came to New Zealand by ship. The work took 15 months. Such dedication is an example of the voluntary commitment of genealogists. The lists will join the growing number of resources available on the internet to family historians throughout the world.
