Note: There is a separate index for each volume.
Maori Personal Names: References to other forms of one name have been given where likely to give the user other possible leads, however it cannot be guaranteed that these are the same persons. It is necessary to search the index well, as names have been interpreted sometimes in several spellings. It is also essential to keep in mind the fact that Maori called themselves by different names.
The fullest Maori name is used as the reference, although all variations are entered. Maori are indexed by first name, for example:
- Teone Kihau
A reference is also given from second names, for example:
|Matenga, Raniera||see Raniera Matenga|
"Te": Names are indexed using the prefix "Te". A reference is given when the name is also used without "Te", for example:
|Te Taumutu||see also Taumutu|
|Te Teira Turakina|
|Turakina, Te Teira/Teira||see Te Teira/Teira Turakina|
Where name repetitions do not fit into the index format, brackets are used, for example:
|Mokomoko, Maka/(Te) Makarini||see Maka/(Te) Makarini Mokomoko|
|Te Makarini Mokomoko.|
A reference is sometimes given from third or more names if those names also appear as a name, for example:
- Hoani Topi Patuki see also Hone/Honi Patuki/Teone/Tione/Topi Patuki
- Hone Topi Patuki
- Honi Topi Patuki
- Te One Topi Patuki
- Teone Topi Patuki
- Tioni Topi Patuki
- Topi, John
- Topi, Patuki
Where Maori have European surnames, they are indexed by surname only, for example:
- White, Korako
Where Maori have European first names they are indexed by their Maori name, for example:
- Te Uki, John
Where a name is listed more than once on any page, as with persons granted land in more than one area, the name and page number is generally listed only once.
European Names: Names are often entered in several ways, according to the manner presented in the text, therefore all listings of any one surname should be perused, e.g.:
Chronology: A chronology precedes the alphabetical index, compiled from abstracts and schedules listed in the volumes. Dates are entered year/month/day.
