FALANITULE

I am seeking more information on my parents, Ike Fetoko Falanitule (passed away 1988, New Zealand), survived by his wife, Haeletagaloa Pokopokotau (Auckland, New Zealand). I am seeking further information on my father's grandfather, Napolitule Falanitule and his wife, Mulifai? I wish to complete my next fourth generation pedigree chart from the information provided.

UPDATE: I have been very fortunate and blessed to have sourced further into finding information about my great grandfather, Napolitule. I am now seeking five generations back to my fifth great grandfather, Uluvili; if there is someone with a link to his direct line?

I am researching my father, Tahamaka Kapagahemata's, family tree. His place of birth is in the village of Hikutavake; he died in Namukulu, in 1963. I would like to find out more information, please, as I want to complete my family genealogy.

LAFOU

Joseph Lafou married my grandmother, Martha Jordon, on 2 December 1916 in Sydney, Australia.

  • He would have left Niue before then.
  • He was 27 years old then, so must have been born about 1889.
  • His father's name was perhaps Sfugiu or Afugiu Lafou (a Wesleyan Minister) and his mother's, Natalesi.
  • Both of his parents are listed as deceased on his marriage certificate of 1916.
  • His occupation is listed as cook, but I assume the only way he could have got here was as a sailor.
  • There is a witness listed on the certificate as G Metui.
  • My grandfather died in 1917, during the influenza pandemic.
  • When I was younger, we had relatives visiting us up until the 1970s, but we did not take note of details because we were only kids and when my father (also Joseph) passed, we couldn't find any details of family in his papers.

    An Internet search revealed the following information. My great grandfather was part of the NZ troops in WWI. Sgt Pulu is noted as the son of Niuloa and Loise Pulu of Hikutavake. He died at sea enroute to NZ on 26 June 1916. He was married to Vaiata Pulu née Peiri. My grandfather is Edgar Pulu, supposedly born in Vaipuna, Samoa. I would greatly appreciate any other information that may be offered as to any relatives in Niue or NZ and or how to go about finding this out. Thank you.

    TUMUTUMU

    I am looking for any relations of my father, Simei Tumutumu and mother, Tititupe, who were born in Niue. She was born on 17 June 1928 in Alofi and raised there and in Tamakautonga, I think. Her father's name was Fitikefu. My father was born on 19 September 1920. His mother's name was Okitau and he had a lot of siblings, now in New Zealand, Australia and the United States. My mother had two sisters; one passed away and one is in New Zealand. One of our cousins from my mother's side, named Heidi, is in New Zealand; whereabouts unknown. One of my aunts' name is Samolia and Alofa is one of our cousins from my father's side, somewhere in New Zealand. I live in Texas and would appreciate any and all information in locating relatives.

    VE'EMOA / PUNIMATA

    I am tracing the roots of my great grandmother, Pule Ve'emoa / Punimata, from the village of Liku. She is pure Niuean by origin.
    She travelled from Niue to Samoa to visit her brother who was Rev. Tanielu Punimata. She then married Ae Taise, son of a Samoan High Chief of the village of Moata'a in Samoa.
    Her marriage to Ae bore five daughters and one son. One of the daughters is my grandmother, Setaisu.
    I am asking assistance to trace this genealogical line of my great grandmother from Niue.
    I am thinking of travelling to Niue with my grandmother and my mother (her eldest daughter) to visit her family. As she is the only surviving issue of Pule in Samoa, she is desperate to know her mother's family in Liku.
