Wanting to locate my mum's whanau
Kia Ora. I would like to meet my mum's whanau. My mothers name was Nancy maxwell from Torere Opotiki. Her father was Harry Maxwell and her mother was mateputuputu Rihimona from Torere. My grandmothers iwi was Ngaitai and she was a full maori. My grandfather Harry Maxwell was also too from Torere and his iwi was Ngati Porou and he too was a full maori. I would like to meet any family members as I do not know any of my mothers whanau. My grandparents are deceased but hopefully somewhere out there there is a cousin..somewhere..has to be. I know only one aunty who lives in Napier and her children but that's it. Can u help me?
