Hi,

I am trying to trace down my ancestry. My grandfather's name was Leitufa Moenoa. He passed away about 4 years ago. He was born in saleimoa. I dont really know much about my samoan ancestry but am keen on looking at it.

Where do you live??

Hope to hear from you soon

Hi George,

I have to call my dad to find out more. Moenoa is actually my grandfather's first name and my dad's family last name is Laufili Time. My dad is only one of his siblings who uses Moenoa. The rest (11 siblings) use Time.

My dad's family ran a store in Saleimoa, and I believe it's still up and running after the hurricane. Are you familiar with that?

Were you raised there? How old are you? Did your grandfather pass away in Saleimoa?

My family moved to the states in early '89 and we're currently living in Las Vegas. My father is a minister there and we've been there since '94.

I am currently in Texas finishing up technical training for the Air Force.

(FYI) I laughed when I was notified of your reply because I thought it was my brother - obviously his name is George.

Please tell me a little about yourself.

God Bless and take care,

Nani.

Hi ya,

Unfortunately no I haven't heard about your dad's dairy in saleimoa. My father who is also called George was over Samoa a couple of years ago.

He said he enjoyed it over there as it was his first time. I am planning to go over there sometime in the future. I am 26 (old bugger aye?? haha) currently living in New Zealand, no children (cross finger's?? haha) and living at home at the moment. Much cheaper at the moment.

I am currently working for a bank called Westpac but will be finishing up there very soon which is great!!! YEHA.

I dont really know much about my samoan background but am keen on finding out more like my samoan familie(s), history etc etc.

I was over Las Vegas a couple of years ago doing a contiki tour. I really liked las vegas. awesome.

Can you please tell me about yourself???

hope to hear from you soon.


Take care


George

Hey George,

I figured it out I think.

My great grandfather and your great grandfather were brothers.

My grandfather, Time Moenoa, and your grandfather, Leitufa Moenoa, were first cousins. I don't know if you know Aunty Aiga but she's your granddad's sister and I know her kids and grandkids very well. She lives in California.

Aunty Aiga also has a son named George. He used in live in NZ. His kids names are Gladys, Ann and Joleen, and Godfry Tuitama. He now lives in Fiji.

My dad and your dad are second cousins I think...which would make us third cousins!!!

Very cool dont' you think:)

Write me back and let me know what you're thinking:)

Talk to ya later "cuz,"

Nani.

Hey Siosi,

My dad has a sister named Kisa there in NZ. She has two daughters named Marie and Neti who are probably in their mid to late twenties and are both married. Would you happen to know them?

Aunty Aiga has got plenty kids - The Tuitama Clan:) Aunty Aiga's daughter Sivai and her three kids live in Vegas - Aaron (25/26), Alicia (18), Charlene (21). Alicia and her boyfriend John (Mexican) have a daughter named Analise who is almost two. Charlene and her boyfriend (I forgot his name but he's African-American) have a baby girl named Giani who is almost two also. I think they are expecting another one on the way. They are both beautiful baby girls. Aaron is still a bachelor and he's one of my favorite peoples. You guys should get together.

Aunty Aiga's son Kia'i also lives in Vegas. He's just...uncle Kia'i - but he's ghetto and funny:) His girl's name is Malia - they've been together since before either of us were born I think. They always mess around saying they're going to find someone else and leave each other - they always say that.

ALL of us use to live together with my mom's sister and her husband and five kids. Aunty Sivai only stayed for a couple of nights because she and her kids really needed their space and she got a place right away. Uncle Kia'i and Aunty Malia stayed in a trailor in the backyard and I totally forgot where my mom's niece and her husband stayed - all the rooms were occupied. Those were the good ol' days.

Tell me about your family.

I hope you don't me e-mailing you but it's much faster for me to access between classes.

Hope to hear from you soon.

Nani.

talofa lava,

I cant believe this cuz. I am just shocked to tell you the truth but in a good way. As far as I know I dont think I know Aunty Aiga but if I saw her I would remember her. My brother remember's her.

I have 3 brother's James (25), Kelvin (23) and Kenny (19). All of us are still bachelor's (I think) haha. No children. We also have a sister named Kelly who is 28/29 I think.She has a baby boy named Keanu.

My grandfather has got 9 children living now. My dad passed away a couple of years ago. They are George(Dad), Lei, Rex, Alfie, Ian, Ben, Emily, Lisa, Noeleen, and aunty Maureen. Big Family aye?? Uncle Lei, Rex, and Ben are living in Australia while the rest of the brother's and sister's are living here in NZ.

I have got a good friend who's family comes from Saleimoa. His last name is Lokeni and he has got some first cousins who also come from the same village in which their last name is Savelio. Do you know the family??

My grandfather also had half a sister called Moore Fairburn. Have you heard for the fairburn family. They are related to us.
Its also interesting to find out on the internet that a guy who plays Gridiron over in Hawaii is called Uriah Moenoa.

I presume he is related to us somehow. haha. Sounds like quite a big family aye?? haha.

Hope to hear from you soon.

Take care

Hey cuz:)

I've come across some people with the last name Lokeni and Savelio but don't know if they were from Saleimoa.

My dad's sister is the one who filled me in on how we are related. I asked my pops last night if he knew your dad and turns out he does know more about his family other than just his parents:)

I'm on break from school but I gotta go now so talk to you later.

Take care and God Bless,

Nani.

Hi George:)

Is it possible to have your mailing address so I could send you pictures of the family?

Can you get any information about our greatgrandparents or their parents?

I want to trace back my roots as far as I possibly can.

Have a good day and I'll talk to you later.

God Bless,

Nani.
