Scottish Migration Collection
Waipū’s settlers came there by way of Scotland, Nova Scotia, and Australia. The Waipū collection contains one episode in the story of the Scottish diaspora of the 19th century.
The Waipū collection documents a significant microcosm of international migration from Scotland to Nova Scotia, to Australia, and to New Zealand, reflecting the spread of the British Empire of the time, and the movement of its people. It includes photos, voyage and settlement diaries, personal correspondence, publications, maps, drawings and genealogies.
