Scanlans of Samoa

Updated August 2, 2001

About Our Family Research


There are a lot of confusions about the Scanlans of Samoa due to lack of written language in the late 1700's and early 1800's. The missionaries of the London Mission Society arrived in the mid 1800's and is largely responsible for forcing the natives to learn and write "the Christian way".
Most of the pre-Christian history is kept through oratories, etc.
