Martin or Matena whanau link
I am looking for my Dad's real mum. Dad took his mothers' name of Martin. His dad was Fong Chung. Dad's name was Alby Martin, born 1938, and had a younger sister by the name of Phyllis. Dad's mum was killed when he was young, about the age of 4 or 5, and he was sent to his father in Auckland. His sister was adopted to another family, and she was last known to be in the Whakatane area. I don't know what Dad's mum's first name was, but it may have been something like Margaret, or Makere? If you think you may have some missing whanau in your tree, we might be it! Here's hoping. Contact me through this site.
