    3. In Kaivalagi- census of Europeans resident in Fiji 1874-75, there is listed a P Seaulau, married, 1 wife, 3 chidren at Dreketi, SavuSavu District. I think this is a misreading of P Scanlon. The other facts fit. Your best chance of finding out anything about them is to access a microfilm copy of The Fiji Times for those years. The children who were born in Fiji should be listed in the Fiji Birth registrations, which start at Cession- 1874. These registrations are available through the Mormon church microfilms, or by writing to the Fiji Registrar of BDMs. Christine On Fri, Apr 22, 2011 at 8:01 PM, Lee Goleby <leemgee@internode.on.net>wrote: > > My great-great grandparents, Patrick Scanlan and Elizabeth Scanlan nee > Campion, and family lived in Fiji from 1870 to 1877.
