First of all, I would like to thank you for reponding to my message..I don't remember when I posted my message, but, thank you anyway. As soon as my like at work slows down I will get back in touch with you. Your story is almost as familiar as mine...My father Kaio Salanoa was also adopted. He too died two years ago. I just recently lost my mother from cancer. My brother has notes of our family tree that my father wrote out for his children. So, by my father being adopted by the Salanoa family, I do not know if it matters or not. Now I am looking for any information on the Leiato family. Before my father past, he legally changed his name to his biological family's name "Leiato". He wanted all of his children to do the same. I only know my grandfather Salanoa. I have no history on the Leiato family. So, with this, please let me know if you would still like to hear from me..
