Māori Land Court Minute Book Index
The Māori Land Court Minute Books Index (MLCMBI) provides quick and easy access to over 1100 hand written minute book records which were made between 1865 and 1910, from the Taitokerau, Waikato-Maniapoto, Tairawhiti, Waiariki, Aotea, Takitimu, and Waipounamu Māori Land Court Districts. The MLCMBI database was created by the University of Auckland Library and is hosted exclusively by The Knowledge Basket.
Please note that this is an index! Researchers will also need access to the Minute Books themselves, which are available in print at the Maori Land Court. The local office is in Hastings for the Tākitimu district. The Tākitimu boundaries are the Mōhaka River in the north to the Wairarapa in the south.
