Of limited interest to me, but I do like the Council Archives slogan, Auckland begins at the Archives, hopefully Maori inclusive.
That's an interesting comment from you, Andrew. Why wouldn't it be? Maori have owned and do own land, paid rates, and set up institutions within the areas of the old legacy councils which make up Auckland Council now. Anything that constitutes a council process, or involved the councils in any way, would be in the records (barring, of course, historic "clean outs" in times long gone by which has left holes for we researchers).
