  1. Chris,
    Just thought I'd point out that, after having had a look for some of my Witten-Hannah's, at the moment the only areas that are available on Family Search are: Blenheim, Canterbury, Hawkes Bay, Marlborough, Napier, Nelson.

    There is no mention of when other areas will become available as yet.
