Hi everybody, my name is Telepa Temoana and I come from Robert David Corrie and his first wife Taoniti Corrie who is from Maiana island in Kiribati formerly known as The Gilbert and Ellice islands. One of Robert and Taoniti's son is Alexander. He went to Ellice islands now known as Tuvalu, to do trading there and met his wife Fetukula. They had two daughters, Mary (Meli) and Samalia. Samalia had many children and one of her son is Iosefa (Joseph) who is my grandfather. Alexander travelled alot to Fiji and also had a wife in Fiji. They had children everywhere. I met an old woman in Suva Fiji named Emily while I was schooling there, she is a granddaughter of Alexander and his wife in Fiji. I reside in Christchurch New Zealand.
