My dad, Nasario is also from Pepjei and was born around the same time as you.
My moms from Kalvaka. I've never been to Rotuma but will do so in the near future.

Anyway, all the best with the book and God bless.

Noaia Rachel, after I had posted my comments and only then I found out that you live in America. It is a great platform of getting Rotumans at home(Rotuma) and abroad to keep intouch and communicate with each other especially, home news through the Rotuma website. Goodbye for now and God bless.
