This bibliography is compiled to assist members of the staff of the National Archives in the
genealogical and biographical enquiries with which they have to deal in the course of their
work. The bibliography is by no means exhaustive there may be some sources which the
compiler has overlooked, and, there may be new materials which may come to light later
on or published in future and which are not included in this volume. The bibliography
therefore needs to be updated from time to time to include these new materials.
The present volume deliberately omits published autobiographies and biographies which
are easily accessible by consulting the Reference Library catalogue. On the other hand it
includes published and unpublished biographies which are not easily discernible from the
The bibliography is divided into six Sections: General, Civil Servants, Indian Immigration,
Polynesian Immigration, the Armed Forces and Autobiographies and Biographies. Under
GENERAL may be found sources of general information on Fiji residents from the earliest
dates to the present. Under the other Sections are to be found sources of information
relating to persons covered by those Sections.
It is hoped that this bibliography will be useful to staff and will assist them in the efficient
conduct of research enquiries. It is also hoped that patrons of the National Archives will
find it useful for their own researchers.
