Thankyou so much for that, my grandmother Teresa was one of her children, and my mother Hinemoa was her grand daughter.
If anyone has a copy of the last Kuka reunion book, and would be willing to let me purchase it, then please let me know asap. I have seen it, but was unable to copy it at the time.
Kia ora ano Natasha - I know Tauranga Library has exactly what you are looking for. Also another thing of interest for you, is a book called "Matakana Island" written by Heeni Murray as there's a photo within of your great grandparents. An I'm pretty sure this is also at Tauranga Library. Or if you want oral history your great grandmother has a sister whose still alive and resides on Matakana Island - Hinemotu Harawira - affectionately known as Nanny Shop an pretty close to 90.
