Trying to trace my grandmother's family. Her name was Kura Farr (born in Tikitiki) , and i believe her mother was Hiria Pokai. I know there was a reunion for our whanau a few years ago, but my Uncle Charlie Farr died the week of the reunion, so our whanau never made it. I would jsut like to take the opportunity to get to know and possibly meet some of our whanau.
