Archive New Zealand keeps some historic notes on the buying and selling of land in Samoa. However, we do not have a copy of the land and title register. They are kept by the regional and title court in Apia. There are gaps in what we have, distributed across the notes of the various authorities that ruled Samoa (timeline on the page).

The 6080 Paper Sequence relates to Land (1902-1913) (Micro 5953) and contains case letters, sometimes with the LK number from the 6070 and 6071sequence. The 18976 Samoa-BMO4 contains German documents that were taken over by the UK military occupation in 1914.

Attempt to search the name of the town or county on Archway (18973 series villages have been digitized and can be consulted online).
Try also using last names (but most will be migration files). To find help in the reading room, use the index on the back of the Samoa book.
