Surnames: Lealaisalanoa, Mauga, Salanoa, Taufaasau
I am also related to the Salanoa aiga from Tula, through my dad's mother. He was legally adopted by his grandparents "Salanoa" but decided when he joined the LDS faith that he should carry his dad's last name. Since of my dad's passing 2 yrs ago, I have tried and gather as much information about "Salanoa" side of the aiga. I am very interesting in finding the genealogy as far as I can go. If you could help me with this desire I would appreciate it very much.
My mother's mom is from Pago Pago, I also read on your post that you are connected in that village. My mother's mom's last name was "Eselu Taufaasau Mauga." I am also from Laie. I ran into a Samoan aiga in Lakewood, Wash., with the last name "Lealaisalanoa," from Falefa. Remembering what my dad had shared w/us many times about his "Salanoa" side, I knew these people were somewhat connected to me. when I asked the ?? I was very disappointed because they claimed that they are the true "Salanoa" aiga, and my Salanoa was as fake as they come. I was grateful that I have a little knowledge of how I am link to "Salanoa" because I started naming names and they looked at me as if they had seen a ghost. I believe knowledge is POWER!!
My dad recently passed and has left what he had w/me. I have few cousins from Laie, now scatter everywhere, last name "Salanoa" that sprang from Iosefa.
I would love to hear what you know and have. Believe me my interest is only to have the genealogy on that side of the aiga. I have no desire of titles or lands or anything w/monetary purposes.
I am sorry if I may offended you by this remark. I only said it because it seems when I asked about "Salanoa" to aiga members they seem to shy away and don't want to talk about it. when I asked a genealogist about it I was told that they have a fear of sharing that informations due to lands and titles w/in the aiga and Samoa itself.
Whatever you could help me with will be much appreciated.
Mahalo plenty,
