Kia ora ano jah,

Make sure you are in the Whakapapa Club and click on full search then put in Waaka - there are quite a few results that may help you.

Do the same thing for Heke - there are two websites for the Heke Whanau.

Then do the same for Rikona at the Full Search as well as going to www.familysearch.org - there are quite a few Rikona there

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