Surnames: Smith Family
My name is Jaye from Brisbane, Australia. I am looking for Oscar and Tui Smith's children who are still alive today or their children. My great-grandmother is their child, her name is Malae Smith who had five children named Simiti, Sisi, Malia and Meleseke. My grandmother is Sisi who had five children which my mother is one of them. They all live in Safotu, Savaii but unfortunately when my grandmother Sisi had her youngest child she had complications and died not long after. My mother and her brothers and sisters we taken by a close member of the family who stayed in Fasito'o Uta and their they were raised up. If anyone has any other information that could lead up to helping me find the missing pieces of my family, I would be so greatful.

Hi there Jaye,

It was nice to have read your email, I am from NZ and have a history of your family tree. My great-great-great grandfather is Oscar Smith. His oldest and first daughter was Serah Smith and she married an Albert Schmidt from Germany, i.e. my great great grandfather.

Myself and a cousin have a history of the Smith family tree and I am in the midst of tracing our roots from that side of the family. My general knowledge of Oscar Smith was that he was from West Virginia - USA and left his family and migrated to Samoa where he had numerous children.

I am presently living in the UK - London with a sister and brother but am in NZ for a holiday.

Email me and I can fill you in with more information if you would like.

Hello Lucia,

Thank-you first of all in response to my determined search to find decendants of Oscar Smith, my great-great-great grandfather.

Mariah Smith is my great-great grandmother and Oscar is her father. She married Simo Timu from Safotu and they had four children 3 girls and 1 adopted brother. One of the girls is my grandmother and her name is Falanisisi. My grandmother had 5 children, 2 girls and 3 boys who are all living at this present time.

What I am hoping is that we are both decendants of Oscar Smith and that both our great-great grandmothers are sisters. With fingers crossed that this would be a big break through for the both of us. If you can please give me more information that would be much appreciated.

I am living in Queensland, Australia and my brother and sister are living in New Zealand.

I hope to hear from you soon!

Take Care

Jaye

Hi,

I'm not a relative or anything, but I have an aunty called Imeleta Smith who has a son named Oscar. I don't know where in Samoa she is from but I know it's Western Samoa. If you would like to contact me you can, and if I can help you I will.

Good luck,
Nani

Surnames: TUI SMITH
I am trying to track
JEANNETTE TUI SMITH who submitted some of her family history to Ancestral File.
My interest in a connection with a family surname of DORKINGS living in England.
JEANNETTE TUI SMITH's address was shown as:

I have not tried writing to this address yet as I figured I would find a quick lead on the internet.
Can you help me and is this address/name of any use to you.

Oscar came from Salt Lake City. That is the result of my research. Good luck to the Smith clan in Samoa.
