To add to Wendy's advice, and for people who live out of Wellington and are unaware of these
changes, the National Library building on the corner of Molesworth & Aitken Streets has now been
evacuated for redevelopment and the library is operating out of temporary accommodation, with much
of its collection in storage. After identifying the most popularly used resources, the Library has
shifted that part of the Turnbull collection to the ArchivesNZ building, at the other end of Aitken
The family history collection is temporarily housed (in limited space) in a building at 77 Thorndon
Quay (opposite the Gateway Shopping complex next door to the railway station).
For visitors, there are steps alongside ArchivesNZ - Old St Paul's side - which bring you out
opposite the shops. Facing the shops, 77 is further to your left, just past Ngati Poneke marae.
A file on the NatLib website advises this, regarding newspaper access in the meantime:

The National Library of New Zealand (http://www.natlib.govt.nz/) would
be my first port of call for something like this. If anyone has copies,
I expect they would.
