Tena koe kazz,

If you make sure you are in the new Whakapapa Club ( http://whakapapa.maori.org.nz) and click on Full Search and put the name Waihi in, you will find some Waihi in the People directory (maybe you can email them) as well as Waihi whanau in some of the lists.

Good luck and let us know how you get on.

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