Mere Taia had 4 children - Irihipeta Betty Smith, Te Huia Sonny Smith, Mona Phyllis Macdonald and Mayla Myrtle Macdonald - i am looking for some photos and any other information on the above named. Hector Macdonald's other children were Hector, Andy, Marina, Della and Patsy. His parents Alex James MacDonald and Venetia Baker hailed from Scotland. This is all i know but wld like to know more about his other children as well - My grandmother was Mayla Myrtle Macdonald.

Kia ora ano,

Use the full search again for Taia (although alot of the results this time may not have Taia in but Kaitaia, Taiapa etc).

You could also go to www.familysearch.org put Taia in Last Name and set the country to New Zealand. There are a few Taia there so you could see if any of that helps

Nau te raurau,

Ka ora ai nga tangata!
Together we will get there!
