About Our Family Research

My Grandfather came to FIJI via the British Girmit Indenture System for Indians in Fiji to work the Sugar Plantation some time between 1900- 1903
I vagely remember him saying that he was arround 15 yrs of age when he ran away from home to the British Depot to be transported to Fiji.
Name: Kunjan F/n Rakhan his mothers name was Walli. She died when he was young in MALABAR. His father remarried and had family. His father had a Toddy shop. He did say he had a big brother who with his father came to take him back home from the British depot in Calcutta, he refused to go back because of fear of being given hiding . I have no idea if my Grandfather had more brother and sisters as he did not mention about them. He was a Malayalam and spoke well. He was a stonch HINDU. He got married in Fiji and had two sons. One of them is my father who is now 85yrs old. Please help if you can trace this family.

Yours truely
Jonathan Subarmaniam
