Kia Ora Koe Taku Whanaunga

I don't know much about my Whakapapa.I'm from the Ruatoria/Hiruharama Moekes.I didn't know there were Moeke's in Putaruru.I use to travel there quite a bit when my partner use to go there and pick up newspapers to bring back to Gizzy.I hear there is quite a few Moekes in Whakatane but i don't know those ones either.Mind you though i think we are spread all over New Zealand.
Thankyou for sharing your Whakapapa with me.Isn't the internet a good tool to have especially in sites like this ...it's amazing who you meet.

Nga mihi ano ki a koe a dutchessnz

I agree, we are spread all over New Zealand and all over the world as well.
Ae kei te tautoko au ki a koe, the internet is a wonderful thing to have today.
My dads brother,Tai Moeke, is living in Whakatane.
I keep in contact now and then on the phone and when we head back to Gizzy in the holidays, we call in and visit whanau in Te Teko, then we visit uncle Tai for a cuppa an a chit chat.
Ma te wa
