Polish Genealogical Society of New Zealand

The Society was founded in Inglewood on the 26th of July 1992 by a group of descendants who were concerned there were no references to the Polish Settlers in the history books of New Zealand. The group aim was to encourage others to take an active interest in researching their Polish Heritage.
