I AM SEARCHING FOR FAMILY LAST NAMES OF ....SCHMIDT, AMAAMA, VAISALO, AND TELEFONI, IN WESTERN SAMOA.
I am an ancestor of the Schmidt family and have some historical knowledge of this family. Email me if you would like to know some more.
I live in NZ but my parents are from Samoa - mother is from Safotu in Samoa.
Helping a friend, anything you can add would help.
Nila Mariana Maiava NEE Schmidt. Born in Samoa - raised in Safotu. Lived in NZ for maybe 60 years....just recently passed away at the age of 94 years. Nila has 2 sisters we know of, now live in Christchurh - still alive.
Her eldest child is Ferila Afele (nee Schmidt), another was Iata Aiono (nee Schmidt).
Obviously looking to go upwards if possible :-)
I am interested in knowing if you know of a man named Stanley Schmidt. He would be around his late 60s or even 70 now possibly. He spent a bit of time in Invercargill around 1969 -1970 but thats about all I know.
Any information would be helpful, thanks.
