I live in Wilmington, NC with my family. My family is the only Samoan family in the area. I was just wondering how many of us there are on the mainland. If you think you are in someway related to the Tootoo's please contact me.

Hi there Megan

I just wanted to let you know that my Dad is a Tuigamala and is related to the TOOTOO'S. We stay in New Zealand and at the moment my sister, father and I are visiting family here in Australia.

Please get back to me regarding more information about your family tree etc.

Looking forward to hearing from you.

"Do u mean Tootoo or To'oto'o?" -LT

1) tootoo: staff, stick, walking-staff

2) Tootoo: (as told to me by my grandmother) tulafale: talking chief: Tootoo: high talking chief

3) The surname TOOTOO/TO'OTO'O: pronunciation for both spellings is the same: toh/oh/toh/oh.

Hope this helps.

Talofa's your cousin Alex from Hawaii. I know it is such a late post but I didn't realize you put this out there. I am replying just in case you still check this. There are members of the To'oto'o aiga all over. In the US mainland, we have family in California, Washington, Alaska, Idaho, Texas, and of course North Carolina. And then of course there are To'oto'o's in Samoa and Hawaii. Not to mention all of the others that have married and changed names and have moved away from the motherland to do what our grandparents did, which was make a better future for their families.

I found this because I am finally making a better effort to research our family history and lineage. We are from Olosega, Manu'a and Vatia, American Samoa. We have other family members with names like Poloai, Vaefaga, Leiato, Masania'i, Tuiasosopo, Tuiolosega, Tauvela, Tuna, Tausaga, Mamea, and on and on and on. Anyways, I look forward to compiling it all and sharing it with the rest of the family...maybe at the next family reunion. Gotta go so I'll get back to you later.

Love you cousin and God bless!

Surnames: Poloai
Hi Mayson5...yes to my knowledge, my maternal great-grandmother is a Poloai from Olosega, Manu'a. Her nme was Asoa Poloai before she married my great-grandfather Ierusalema To'oto'o also from Olosega. She had 3 sisters (Fa'afuasei, Nimara and Penina) and 1 brother (Koli) born to her parents Poloai and Siaumau. I also heard from other sources that Poloai was also known as Atafua. In any case I'm sure we are related somehow. Aren't all Samoans family? Well, I'll keep you posted if I find any new info on our Poloai aiga and do the same if you find anything else. Take care and God bless! Soifua!
