Path to Unclaimed Maori Land monies
Kia ora whanau, ko Ira taku ingoa,
Here is the path to find the list of unclaimed maori land monies. Might take awhile if you haven't already downloaded it. There are about 120 pages of UNCLAIMED MAORI LAND MONIES and each page has at least 50 names and you also need Adobe/Acrobat Readers program to download the list.
Once you have opened the unclaimed_list06.pdf file, go to EDIT (top left hand corner on the toolbar).
Click on EDIT then click on FIND(on this page).
A small box should appear.
Type in the name of the person you are searching for (and be as correct in the spelling as you can becos this is not a user friendly program).
If you want to search for another person press ctrl and home. This will take you back to the beginning of the file.
If you don't go back to the beginning of the program, the program will look at the names ahead and not the names above as well.
For example: If you are on page 62 and you are searching for surname 'Bennett' (which is near the beginning of the file), the program will say "Acrobate has finished searching the document and found no matches", that's why you need to go back to the top of the file each time you do a new search.
Please post me if you have problems.
Noho ora mai Whanau

Kia Ora Ira Boyd,
Thanks for your information on how to access the list. I scrolled through all the names and took a note of some of the family names that were familiar to me and where I live and will let the families know so they can take a look at the list themselves. You are to be commended for your willingness to share this information. Although my family names do not appear on the list, I can surely pass the information on to those families whose names do appear. Once again thank you! Toosick
Tena Koe iraboyd,
Thank you. This was one of the tasks I placed on the 'back burner', so thanks for the timely reminder. Not so sure that it's a good thing though, as I struck a problem - unable to open the file.
Maybe my pc security is making it's own arrangements aye Kare? Going back to check.
Kia ora Ruth, did you manage to open the file?
Kia Ora Ira,
No! but have now updated the loaded Adobe and Acrobat Readers, so will have another go.
Kia ora Ruth, enjoy your browse! When they start talking Adobe/Acrobat Readers, that's like the german language to me, sorry couldn't have been of more assistance. But you done it, pai mahi e hoa.
Ma te waa,
Ko Ira ahau
