Looking for the Cook/kuku Family. My father was "Richard Maynard Cook", also known as "Shot" (think he was good at pool and used to own a billard hall in Auckland)
He married "Betty Ngawai Te Amohanga".
I am the youngest of his children. Elizabeth, also
Richard - Christopher - Karen - Rose - Malcolm
Any help would be appreciated. My dad passed away last year. Just trying to contact his side of the family.
see below for full details

Kia Ora Whakawhetai mo te tautoko. My mother Ilaise Mafi Kuki/Kuku from Tonga, her father Walter Kuki/Kuku, his father Albert Cook/Kuku son of George Cook, and George Cook is son of William Cook. I need a contact to our whanau up in Waikare, Russell. I attended the 2006 Cook/Kuku Reunion and was touched by the aroha, manaakitanga and whanaungatanga of everyone in our Cook/Kuku Whanau. If you did attend this reunion, you would recall that I had an accident up the hill, but we were safely got out of the site to the marae for our Powhiri. I would like to chat to our Waikare Whanau please... Much appreciated. Kia Ora. Aroha nunui to you all Whanau.
