Otaki Historical Journal - New Index
The Otaki Historical Society has been producing the Otaki Historical Journal since 1978, providing a valuable resource for researchers, historians, genealogists and others interested in the history of Ōtaki. In 2012, the society commissioned a professional indexer to catalogue every entry in all issues of the journal, producing a high-quality index packed with more than 400 pages of references to journal articles. The index includes references to people, places, events and other topics that have helped to create the Ōtaki of today. The index includes the latest journal – 2012 – and is available free from the society in PDF format.
Contact journal editor Ian Carson (email@example.com) for an emailed copy. The index is also available for viewing at Kāpiti coast district libraries and the Ōtaki Museum. Some past journals are available for sale from Maurice King (firstname.lastname@example.org).
All the Kāpiti District Libraries have free WiFi available.
