My lineage is from my Great-great GrandMother Betty Maelega who is the one of the few daugthters of Neti(Ned)Purcell who will be my Great-great-great GrandFather and from her lineage line she bore a son by the name of Kuluku Feo, my Great Grandfather who had my GrandMother Mei Tevaseu Omeri(Nee Feo) who then had a Daughter by the name of Temukisa Galuega-Kaio(Nee Omeri), So therefore from what I see & have recorded having to search & Ponder upon my Purcell Lineage, Neti(Ned) Purcell had many children even to whom he & his wife lost during childbirth, I understand that Malaela is the Purcell Aiga Villiage(Tounu'u) of where we all have descended from and I've also come to an understanding within my research that the name 'Purcell' originates from Ireland & possibly could have reached England, But I do believe that we have a Purcell Family crest held in the Irish Family History Records.So no matter what, all 'Purcells' who carry the name are all related through Neti(Ned) Purcell.

My name is Kenneth Wood my great grandmother is Apaula Purcell hope I spelt it right. I really want to get connected with my Purcell aiga so my Samoan side never fades away.
My Nana tells me all these stories about Samoa and our aiga in Aleipata.
My goal is to try and get in touch with some Purcell famz and try and stay close I eventually would love to move to my island and learn the culture and language properly living in Australia is hard to learn the culture.
Hope to hear from someone
