Welcome to your National Archives web page. We have a vast treasure trove of information about Fiji and its people. This information is held for you in archival records and publications occupying over six kilo meters of shelving, along with over a hundred thousand historical photographs, and two thousand hours (70 terra bytes) of historical audio visual footage, some of which has been repackaged and is aired on television in the "Back in Time" programme.
These holdings constitute the lion's share of Fiji's documentary heritage. It provides a bridge for users to reach back in time to find vital information for present day issues such as pension entitlements (for former civil servants), family genealogies, property issues and so on. And for professional researchers we are an unrivaled repository of primary and secondary source materials, necessary for compiling comprehensive works on anything concerning Fiji.
Engaging with the archives has enabled many to connect with their heritage in a real and invigorating way. Through this webpage we hope to support you by:
- Showing you what we have
- Helping you to make the most of our resources
- Highlighting important pieces of Fiji's history
- Sharing how your archives has impacted the lives of its users
There is much to see here, and we hope this will entice you to visit us and begin your own personal journey of discovery.
