Samoa Archives and Libraries
Archives collect and preserve original documents of organizations, such as churches or governments. Libraries generally collect published sources such as books, maps, and microfilm. This section describes Samoa’s major repositories of genealogical and historical records and sources.
If you plan to visit one of these repositories, write and ask about the collection, hours they are open, services, and fees several weeks before you arrive.
The National Library of Australia has strong holdings of historical materials relating to the South-West Pacific, including extensive runs of rare and unique materials in such collections as the Petherick, Nan Kivell, and Ferguson collections. The Pacific collecting reaffirmation stemmed from a desire to both build on these existing strengths and to assist in the maintenance of strong strategic, economic, and cultural links between Australia and the Asia-Pacific region, links that the Commonwealth Government regards as a high priority.
