Please if you know of or if you are one of the children of Tom McLean/Makarini please contact me. We are all trying to fit our whakapapa together and we would be pleased to hear from you all. The Tom we are seeking is the son of Renata (Len) and Ngapera (Bella) McLean. They lived in Hiruharama on the East Coast while the family was young then they moved to York St in Gisborne till they died. Tom passed on in 1990 and was buried in Gisborne with his parents next to my mother. Wini, your auntie Manu's daughter is also very keen to make contact. Thanking you in anticipation of a reply.

Sandra McLean is one of the daughters of Uncle Tom, she stays in Hastings or Napier the last time I saw her was when her twins were sick and came to Wellington Hospital for treatment.

It was probaly 14 or 15 years ago, which is pretty longtime.

Please if anyone can help us, please panui it around especially those one's who stay in Hastings or Napier.

I suggest you try www.oldfriends.co.nz. You have to sign up but can find a lot of people from NZ on this site and send them an email.
