Vanuatu Research Tips[edit | edit source]

  • In Vanuatu, records are difficult to figure out because of the condominium government.
  • Until the 1970's, France and Great Britain were joint colonizers of the island. Records are in both languages. Jurisdiction of records is mixed between religious and government entities.
  • Resources available are similar to French Polynesia in record keeping practices, which means that you must get someone who knows French, English, and your native language to help us to find and use the records.
