Pitcairn treasures wanted

From , 3:01 pm on 31 August 2016

A search is underway for treasures from Pitcairn Island which have migrated abroad along with Pitcairn's diaspora.

The Norfolk Island museum is undertaking the project to act as a repository for information and to connect Pitcairn Island with the places its people have moved to.

The museum's Janelle Blucher blue-chuh says the museum doesn't keep the items, many of which are prized possessions passed down through families.

She says instead they are documented and photographed and oral histories are being recorded as well.
