Surnames: Taeoali'i (Moata'a, W.Samoa)
Looking for more information on my Great grandmother from Moata'a. Her name was Te'i (Kei) Taeoali'i. Te'i married Lafoga and they had several children, one of whom is my late grandmother (paternal), most of their children were born in Moata'a. The branch of ancestors from Kei's name stops there and I would love dearly to fill the missing parts. I know alot of the descendents from their union from my late grandmother and my father but nothing direct of her ancestors (e.g. parents, grnds, or siblings etc...) Any help would be appreciated. I have all the information available on LDS, which coincidentally matches verbal information gathered from family members. thank you very much.

I am not familiar with the Galumalemana or Nofoasaefa names and neither is my dad.

Enele, however, is a family name - it is my dad's late older brother's name. My dad (he is 71yrs)
says his aunty's name was Lise who also had a daughter she named Siliala. My dad did alot
of travelling around the place and at one time spent two weeks
with his aunty Lise who he said lived near a big waterfall.

Te'i name runs in the family as well.

All I know is that Tei's family name as Taeoali'i (if we follow naming conventions
of the child taking the father's name as a surname it could be the same person). I will check with my aunty
who lives in W.Samoa about the names as well. Dad says she will know.

Your help is very welcomed!!

Warm regards
