Is the surname ATOA a matai title? or do you know which surname is the original aiga/Family's surname - TI'ETI'E? ATOA?
I'm assuming both surnames - TI'ETI'E and ATOA - are Polito's lineage.
If not and ATOA is a matai title, did the surname ATOA come with Polito's side of the family or his wife's, Fa'agutu TUGAGA, aiga/Family?
Is ELLA a surname also? I've noticed a record for Ella ATOA and ATOA ELLA with data for both names being the same.
Also, Polito's children repeats names that Apele's children also carry.
At the moment I'm trying to find out if any of Apele TI'ETI'E's descents know the marriage history between BLACKLOCK and TI'ETI'E.
