Finding Family Blong Yumi
Central to this is the development of one of the largest genealogy and finding family projects ever conducted in the Pacific. Finding Families has a number of strategies that are to be implemented. These include:
1. An extensive website and online genealogical and historical resource
2. Village-level engagement, oral recording, historical and records research and finding families
Developing an online familiy histories resource will enable the collection of genealogical information that will form the basis of the entire project. Our website, www.blackbird.vu will be expanded in late 2011 and customised to meet the needs of individuals and families in gathering and matching family history. A significant component of this project will be the ability to engage all relevant communities on the ground in their community.
