Kiaora Bubba Coffey,

I to came upon this website by accident. My mother, Aorangi was a sister to your father Bob, she was adopted out of the family a birth, but has never lost the links with her siblings, so we where fortunate to have two families. Our family continue to stay in Pipiwai. I only spoke two weeks ago to uncle Bob's daughter Rosellen.

mum left me with a bit of whakapapa when she passed away and if you want any please just email me

Kia ora Bubba,

Just an inquiry, have you got a website over there for finding whanau, like this one.

I am helping a friend find a father, Pat or Mahikai Patukino Newton who moved to Australia about 8 years ago.

Would appreciate a website for contacts like this one.
One that is regularly used by maori in australia or even someone who can help us find Mr Newton.

Any suggestions would be also appreciated. Have contacted the consulates from Australia and not much fun there. All privacy act stuff.

Hope you can help.

Arohamai.
Ko Ira tenei.
