Are you interested in the Samoan Land information from the 1850's until the 1920's? Archives New Zealand holds a range of records from the colonial period of Samoan history.

There are valuable land, inheritance, court and other records from the German administration, as well as the First World War British Military Occupation period and early New Zealand colonial period.

Archives’ holdings are very far from complete. They consist of only a portion of the surviving early 20th Century government documents but they do provide valuable evidence of the administration of land, chiefly titles, court cases and similar matters.

Researching these records can be a slow and difficult process but some prior knowledge of these files will assist anyone researching Samoa from the 1890s until the 1920s.

We know that researching these records can be slow and difficult process. In advance of Samoan Language Week Jared Davidson, an archivist with the Research Services team at the Wellington office of Archives New Zealand Te Rua Mahara o te Kāwanatanga, will give some guidance that will help in using these records.
