Kia Ora Julian,

I too am from Huntly, so I understand your grandparents are Uncle Johnny and Aunty Hine - Janey, I know your father and mother, my husband Tutai Tiananga done a job for your parents just before Christmas. I went to school with your Aunty Alison. One of your grandfathers brothers James I think his name was yip James well he married Wehe Putere or Purua who was my grandfathers, Andrew Wetere Kenny or Putere, sister - and if my memory serves me right your father was named after either my grandfather or his son Andrew Kenny who drowned in the Waikato river. Ask dad he may know or maybe I might be wrong.
