Surnames: Tofaeono, Leiataua (Manono), Fuamatu (Fagalii), Seiuli
I am trying to put together a family tree for my dad's family. These are the family names he gave me to start with. His mom's name was Leli'a (she was a Tofaeono) from Moamoa and Vaiala village, her siblings were Mita'i and Lia'i. Dad thinks my granny's dad's taulealea name was Toa. Grandma Leli'a was also a Leiataua from Manono and a Fuamatu from Fagalii as well as a Seiuli. I think her sister Lia'i was supposed to have been married to a gentleman from the Stowers family. Grandma married my grandfather Falo Faigata Tiumalu from the village of Fagatogo in American Samoa. My father's name is Falo Falo Tiumalu. Our family has grown much would like to prep something for the upcoming generations. Faafetai tele fesoasoani mai.

Surnames: SAMATAUA, TIUMALU, TOA
Talofa/Hello:

"Grandma married my grandfather Falo Faigata Tiumalu from the village of Fagatogo in American Samoa."

Found per www.familysearch.org*:

Falo TIUMALU
b.1896 Fagatogo,Maoputasi,Tutuila, , Samoa, Pacific Islands
m.1921 Fagatogo, Tutuila Island, Samoa, Pacific Islands
d.1940 Fagatogo,Maoputasi,Tutuila, , Samoa, Pacific Islands
parents: Faigata TIUMALU & Taitai SAMATAUA (this couple married in 1893 Laulii, Upolu Island, Samoa, Pacific Islands)

Leli'a TOA
b.1898 Abt 1900 Moata'A Upolu, Samoa, Pacific Islands
m.1921 Fagatogo, Tutuila Island, Samoa, Pacific Islands
d.1971 Upolu, , Samoa, Pacific Islands
parents: TOA & Mrs. TOA (to really find this couple try to get more info from elders in your aiga/Family; if TOA is a matai title there has to be oral history regarding what the original surnames is/was before TOA.)

....

*It is suggested that the source listed above is **only used** as a reference to further your research.

Data from FamilySearch can be confusing if not over-flowingly abundant. It is your decision to verify and confirm all sources (depending on how accurate your family tree is presented to others now and in the future).

....

I did find a marriage:

William CRICHTON m.1906 Mitai (no surname listed) Asau,Savaii, , Samoa, Pacific Islands

I will check more on Mita'i and Lia'i as I do not find them listed under TOA.

Let me know your thoughts.

Fa'afetai/Thanks!

Manuia/Regards,

aloha veilo,

I'm sorta grasping at straws here, before my dad passed on he asked that I look up his mom's side in fagalii, her mother was a fuamatu, my grandma's name was Leli'a and her siblings were Lia'i and gotta look up the brother again. They were from Vaiala and Magiagi area. My grandma married my granddad who was from Fagatogo in American Samoa and his mom was from Lotofaga. If you wuld like my e addy is margaretlogotaeao@yahoo.com ... I live in Hawaii.

thx for e-mailing, fagalii is a small village it wouldn't surprise me if you are relative. blessings
