Palmerston North Actions Registers   (21225)
1904 - 1985  range held: 1904 - 1985


The registers in this series record civil cases where a person or body (the plaintiff) was suing another person or body (the defendant) at the Palmerston Supreme Court (later High Court) for financial or other reasons. Actions were later called civil proceedings cases.

The registers show names, occupations and places of residence of the plaintiffs and defendants, and the date of filing of legal documents in the case. Each case is assigned an annual number, in order.

There is an alphabetical index by names of parties at the front of each volume giving page number and civil proceeding or action number.
