Sorry for bothering the group...I decided to join the group as I probably like many of you have been trying to do researches on our roots.I am from Gasele Yale Kadavu. I belong to the Mataqali Vusanamu...well it was a Mataqali before they were cheated in the Veitarogi Vanua and have now only been recognized as "itokatoka" Vusanamu...All I know is that we are regarded as "Daunisoko" we initially settled in Bau before moving on to Rewa.. I know we have links in Nabua, Waitoga, Nadroga...The Vola ni Kawa Bula has only our great Grandfather's name...Josefa Rabuli....
Hi all, i thought i would share a fact to a mystery that i have tried to uncover for quite some time now. The mystery was the true identity of the person named FOIAKAU. There was a post regarding the lineage of FOIKAU posted here previously. And as far as i have found, it is a legitimate version. There are other versions that are comparatively the same in Tongan and in Samoan, Kramer even documented the lineage with a variation. Here is a fact i have now uncovered. Foiakau is a Samoan Tongan. His real name was MANU-PUNEFU of Falefa, on the island of Upolu. He is known in my Tongan grandmother's ancestor simply as PUNEFU.
Cola Vina and Malo, I was just wondering did a Reunion happen in Fiji for the Yavusa ni Tonga ? or is there one being planned ? would love to know an update :)
malolelei, talofa regardto Maca Ramoce...its likely your grandfather's name is Tautalasoo rather than Taotalasoo. Reason Taotalasoo has no translation in Samoan. Iliapo however is Samoan and it somewhere in the northwest coast..the Matai name would identify exactly where in Savaii or Upolu.
talofa lava,malolelei and bula to all ....I am here looking for my family whom I have been hunting down for years..My grandfather Iliapo Taotalaso'o hails from Savaii,Samoa.I understand his mothers name was Sally Fusi..My grandfather is a matai and he came to Fiji looking for work.When he arrived in Fiji he changed his name to Tilley since those who had English names were given jobs quickly.Well ever since we have been stuck with the name Tilley who resides in Vanua Levu.I also understand that we have German connections because of my great grandmother's father.Well anyway,one of my grandfather's sister followed him to Fiji and got married in somosomo,Taveuni.One of her sons is Ratu Jone Lewenilovo..Well I am still trying to find more details and hope that some day I will get to meet my relations.Vinaka
any come back on my case, anyone? Thank you in advance.
