Maori Land Court Minute Books training session

In house training session with Sheeanda Field 26.5.11

Covered background to Maori Land Court and practical hands on with Maori Land Court Minute Index and actual minute books themselves

A resource I have used in the past in public library days, not so much recently. Searching the index seems relatively straightforward. Working backwards and trying to find an entry in the index from a page copied from the minute books themselves was somewhat more challenging!

Really useful to get a catchup on using this resource. Reminder of information needs of Maori clients that information seeking is often in reference to a place and whakapapa.
