Samoan Family Websites

While helping a friend in furthering her research. We came upon a Samoan family website. My friend was excited to see her extended family. She had no idea of this family website.

So I thought that this may be a beginning of sharing Samoan Family Websites on the Samoan Genealogy Group. These sites vary in information posted by the families themselves.

If you have a family website and would like to share it. Please share a link.

Family History Centers in American and Western Samoa

I came across a gentleman who was trying to locate information on his 3Greatgrandfather who is Samoan. He wanted to contact a FHC in American Samoa. So we looked at FamilySearch.org website and saw the contact information he was looking for.

Posted below is the contact information and the link from Familysearch.org on the FHC's in American Samoa and Samoa (Western Samoa).

And--If any of you have called, visited or written a FHC in American or Western Samoa. Share your experience. It will greatly help others in finding information for their AIGA.

I failed to mention that FamilySearch also has this same US Census available to view on their site. In fact they did a update on 20 Jan 2011, 8,521,754 records, index only.
