Hi Diane Coles
I am the granddaughter of the late Nite Tagomoa. Nite and Fati were sisters and your mother Doris was adopted out to Fati & Thomas. I don't know why, but if you know, I would love that bit of info. Your mother has at least 7 biological siblings and only 3 surviving, 2 resides in Samoa and 1 in Auckland. Hopefully that bridges that gap about your mother's side. Is your mother still alive? My father, Ta'alili Tagomoa has passed on but we are very much in touch with the extended family in fact, we are hoping to organise a family reunion in 2015 (Sept. or Xmas) not yet decided. Your aunty Majorie, Audrey and uncle Les will know heaps about your family history; why not get in touch with them.
Let me know if there is anything else you would like to know. I, too, would like to know more about our grandmother.
Much love cousin, Diane -
