I'm a member of the Porter Family that originated in Am. Samoa - for family members lving in tutuila or upolu they're easily found using the online phone directory - there are also members of that Porter Family in USA mainland and hawaii, Guam, NZ, Australia. Sometimes they use the samoan surname Alaimalo.

PS. There are two unrelated Porter families in Upolu - the family mentioned above is located in Apia & Falelatai, the other Porter family is located in Aleipata

hope this helps

According to www.familysearch.org the Crichton family of Sataua originated with William Crichton born 1828 in Glasgow Scotland who married Uputana Fuiono abt 1856 and had 6 children.
Many of their descendents married Samoans, and a few married Tongans.
Sometimes the name Crighton is spelled Criton or Crichton

Talofa/Hello:

"Which Porters are you looking for?"

Faamolemole/Please to whom are you directing your question with? There are many on this thread regarding CRICHTON and/or PORTER, and if you're singling one of the responders please tell us which one.
....

"The Alaimalo-Porters are on the board."

Faamolemole/Please tell us to which board ALAIMALO-PORTERs are on?

Per the PORTER messageboard there is mention of PORTER on Australia and New Zealand, yet nothing for Samoa.

Per the SAMOA messageboards there is one post regarding ALAIMALO and three posted for PORTER.

I have requested a new board for ALAIMALO.

Should be up in a day, so, you might post your concerns with the new ALAIMALO messageboard and maybe start a Rootsweb ALAIMALO mailing list also. Let me know if I can help out.

Fa'afetai/Thanks!
....

Manuia/Regards,

Hi I'm from the Crichton family. William had a son William Crichton Jr and I am from that line. My grandmother was one of William Jnr's daughters, her name is Lola. She has a brother named Ollie who's family all live in American Samoa. I have facebook contact details for them, email me fredapenn@hotmail.com They're the only Crictons I know of in Am Samoa. Otherwise all other Cricthons were in Savaii/Upolu and are now all other the world. Good luck with your search and there is plenty of info about the Samoan Cricthon family on the internet. Cheers Freda
