After a category 5 cyclone devastated the small island nation of Niue in 2004, the records preserved by FamilySearch, the family history organization of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints, become the only existing copies of many of the records.

These government records were copied and restored to Niue to help with claims related to property and inheritance.

FamilySearch has digitized and preserved billions of records from around the world.
