Hone Tipa and Herenga (nee Dawson).
They had two sons and a daughter (that we know of) the sons names are William and Michael and daughters were Lucy and Maria
William Tipa is my husbands grand-father who passed away in the mid 1980's. William was born in Kaitaia 9th August approx 1924. He was Northland Boxing Champ and was also in the Maori Battalion.
Any help would be appreciated

Tena koe michelle.tipa,

If you go to www.familysearch.org and put Tipa in the surname, setting the country to New Zealand you will find quite a few of that whanau listed which may help you piece together information.

Nau te raurau,
Naku te raurau,
Ka ora ai nga tangata!
Together we will get there!
