Members of the New Zealand Society of Genealogists with an interest in Channel Islands family history ran,for 20 years, a special interest group in New Zealand to provide mutual support. That group no longer exists, but a comprehensive website contains much information of interest to those whose ancestors emigrated to New Zealand and Australia.

The group's Channel Islands Immigration Database project has records gleaned from Interest Group members' submissions over some years, together with extractions from books, and shipping records of those Channel Islanders who came to Australia and New Zealand mostly in the 19th Century.

These records have been drawn on by Mark Boleat in a short book - Migration from Jersey to New Zealand in the 1870s [1]
