  • Each of the areas of Polynesia have their own specific sites. You can access those sites by clicking on the links to each island below. These sites provide access and the ability to contribute to surnames lists, transcriptions of documents, query posting facilities and more. For more information about the transcription of documents for any PacificGenWeb project, please click here.

    The sites are in need of volunteer coordinators. If you would like to participate or would like further information, please click here.
