MY GREAT GRANDMOTHER IS A HELU. I'M NOT QUITE SURE OF THE NAMES BUT THERE WERE TWO HELU SISTERS THAT MARRIED TWO AKAUOLA BROTHERS & MY DAD COMES FROM THE OLDEST SISTER AND MY UNCLE FUTA HELU (ATENISI COLLEGE) COMES FROM THE YOUNGER BROTHER. I'M NOT SURE IF YOU'RE FAMILIAR, BUT I KNOW THAT THE "HELU'S" ARE ONE FAMILY AND SO ARE THE "AKAUOLA'S"

Hi Paul

Unfortunately, I cannot read Tongan. However I am very interested in what you all have to say. Is there any chance that you can repost in English?

Since my original post in 2003, I have returned to Tonga (Lotafoa) to visit my family. Some of the names in the subsequent posts are very familiar. I have not looked at "my family" tree since about 2003, however, your posts have rekindled my interest.

I would be interested in sharing the information I collected up to 2003 with you. I know I will need to do some updating, as there have been many births in my immediate family since then :)

cheers

Phil Koloi

Hi! My mother is a Helu. I'm not sure if you know her, her name is Halaevalu Helu? Her father was Sioli Manitisa Helu. If you are a Helu, then we are related!
