Surnames: FAUMUINA
I am interesting in learning more about of the Title name Faumuina, this family name was original from Western Samoa, from the village of Lepea, and later came to Tutuila and became one of the Paramount Chief of Tutuila, and became the head title of Sa'ole District, Government of American Samoa, and Tutuila as a whole.

Faumuina title is also known to Tutuila and Sa'ole District as "Tupufia"

Please help, very interesting in learning, my grand father, and my father were both title holder of the "FAUMUINA", and they both are deceased.

Fa'afetai tele,

Surnames: Faumuina, Malaitai, McCarthy, Pritchard
My family are faumuina's from Lepea. It was one my great grandmothers fathers titles. However, its hard to distinguish as some of the Lepea faumuinas later became faumuinas for Saleimoa. My great grandmothers side were the Malaitai and some other name I can't remember. My great grandfather was William McCarthy who took the Faumuina title and then married another woman in Saleimoa who also had a Faumuina, her name was Atele Pritchard.

Surnames: Blakelock, Faumuina, Masoe
My uncle called Faumuina lives in Lepea. It's been over 13 years since I left Samoa when I was a kid, but I remember he lived in a big fale'oo/falepalagi house on a great big green field which faces the road...to Pesega I believe. Anyway, he is related to my grandmother, Aitogi Masoe (married name) also of Lepea. My aunty and uncle Helen and Asi Blakelock also lives in Lepea. Please contact me and we'll dig into our family history and see where we end up:)

Hope to hear from you soon,
Nani
