A HeritageTalk from Keith Stuart, Auckland Council Archives.

Some of Auckland Council's earliest archives are those from highway and road boards. These boards were stepping stones in Auckland local government, and their work developing roading across the region laid a foundation in the city’s progress.

Keith Stuart looks at the records that have survived and their value for genealogical and historical research, illustrated with documents scanned from Auckland Council Archive's South collection.
