    1. [Fiji] Scanlan Family 1870-1877
    2. Lee Goleby
    3. My great-great grandparents, Patrick Scanlan and Elizabeth Scanlan nee Campion, and family lived in Fiji from 1870 to 1877. I don't know where they lived. They had a daughter, Catherine (Kate), who was born in New Zealand before the move to Fiji. Children who may have been born in Fiji include: James, Richard Patrick (or Robert Patrick), Elizabeth (Betty), Margaret (Maggie), and Isabella (Belle). The family legend is that the Scanlans lost everything due to a "Fiji Hurricane" - I don't know which one, but they returned to New Zealand in 1877. Is there anyone who could suggest how I go about researching this family during their time in Fiji? Regards Lee
