I don't know about NZ, but you definitely can order copies of certificates
from Salt Lake City if you are in the US or Canada. Here is the procedure:
If your FHC does not have the proper form (and mine didn't until I started
ordering this way), call LDS in Salt Lake to get the proper form (without
which you can not order anything). These are the numbers.
1-800-537-5950 in Canada
1-800-537-5971 in the US
When you call, ask for the form "Request for Photocopies - Census Records,
Books, Microfilm or Microfiche." The form number is 31768.
Fill out the LDS Catalog Number for the film that has the year you need.
You can get this from the online Family History Catalog or from your FHC. A
particular film may cover a range of years.
Fill out the name of the person.
In the column marked "Title, parents/spouse etc." write the kind of record
you are ordering, such as West Derby, Lancashire, Marriages.
Fill out the date, or as much of it as you have, preferably the complete
date, which you will have gotten from whatever index you were looking at.
Fill out the place name - when working from an index, you may have a town,
a parish, a township, or a registration district, put whatever you have.
I've been told you should not put a church name, as it is the parish and
not the individual church where the event would have been registered.
In col. 6, put the registration number and year, which you will also get
from the film information in the family history catalog.
Send the form to the address on the form and you should get your copy back
within six weeks or so. A helpful person at my FHC has filled out my forms
for me each time, and I haven't been charged for the copies so far, so I
don't know whether there is usually a charge.
