Malo ni Margaret, My name is John Pedro from Wellington New Zealand. My father is Donald Pedro whose mother was Maamui Emily Pedro the eldest daughter of Selepa Vaopuka and Jose Pedro. It seems that we are related. It was fascinating to read your information regarding Jose Pedro. I have managed to learn that he passed away in 1921 on Fakaofo, Tokelau.

I too am interested in discussing this further privately. Look forward to hearing from you.

Talofa everyone

My name is Tahirih Pedro Tuaree and I am the great grand daughter of John Jose Pedro from one of his sons Ioakima Jack Pedro who migrated from Tokelau to Kiribati and married a tuvaluan lady named Taase. My understanding of the family tree from my grandfather Kima Jack Pedro was that John Jose Pedro married three grand daughters of Vaopuka the king of Tokelau.Vaopuka had a son named Sakaio who marrid Kesia and have children, three of which are married to John Jose Pedro. John Jose Pedro's three wives are: Toniga- first. Siniva is second wife and Selepa is youngest and third wife. My grandfather is the oldest child of Selepa and second is his brother Fred Pedro, third is Ben Pedro, fourth is David Pedro, fifth is his sister Maamui Emily Esera Pedro (who resided in Fiji), sixth is Ana Iosua Pedro, seventh is Margaret Pedro Jennings, eighth is Luisa Pedro, ninth is Sania Pedro Sua, tenth is Iva Pedro. As for John Jose Pedro's first marriage Toniga, their children are: Manuelo(Manuele)Pedro Mr, Toniga Solomona Mrs,Rebecca and Suliana. From his second wife Siniva, they have three children: Petelu Pedro, Falani Pedro and Mele Pedro Pereira Mrs.

I hope this information helps and would be happy to learn more about the family ancestry.

cheers to you all


By the way all of Selepa and John Jose Pedro offsprings names have all been used in Kiribati, Marshall Islands and Tuvalu where Ioakima Jack Pedro's(my grandfather) offsprings resides. Names like David, Fred, Ben, Emma, Mamui. Iva, Luisa, Sania, Margaret are all common names in our family in Kiribati, tuvalu and marshall islands now.

Malo ni MPT and the Pedro Family,

We have a family reunion in July 2010 over in American Samoa!

I have some questions:
1. When was Jose John Pedro born? 18??
2. What was the name of the town he was born in, in Portugal?
3. What happened to his daughter Iva Pedro? Her sister Maamui last heard that the she went to Australia with a Mr Grimble between 1926 and 1933, and was never heard of again.
