Looking for any connection or knowledge on my Granfathers name who left the Solomon Islands, early 1900's to live in Samoa. Tapusini Peni Maluana. He came from the Buka islands in the Solomon Islands, which I now understand falls under Papua New Guinea.
Mati, is Buka Islands the same as PukaPuka Island?http://lists.rootsweb.com/index/intl/PNG/PAPUA-NEWGUINEA.htm...

Topic: Papua NewGuinea, and the surrounding island including New Britian (Capital City Rabaul) and the Solomon Islands.
(I'm a happy member!)
Solomon Islands or Melanesia? One stands alone and using Melanesia would group a lot of islands under one umbrella in the Melanesia area.
Let me know.
