Pacific Islands Interest Group


The Pacific Islands Interests Group acts as a information source for people interested in researching their Pacific Islands heritage or connections, no matter what race.

Genealogical information and history for all the Pacific Islands is continually being sought and obtained, and is available to members and anyone else interested. Most of the information is in the form of books and folders.

Newsletters are sent out to members four times a year, with information and advice.
