Naturalisation lists (1st of 2)

Naturalisation lists

In 1925 the Department of Internal Affairs published a list of all aliens who had been naturalised in New Zealand since the right to become a British citizen had been granted to non-Britons. These two pages of the published list have handwritten additions of the names of people naturalised between 1925 and 1935. Further lists were published throughout the 20th century. Later lists had the title ‘Register of persons granted New Zealand citizenship’.
