Kia ora, I am connected to the Bailey whanau of Waitara. Your late grandfather was a first cousin to my grandfather Jim Bailey (of Wanganui). I will be more then happy to share what Bailey whakapapa and photos I have with you. Please contact me by email.
Look forward to hearing from you.

Kia ora Wendy, maybe you could help me too, my nan was a Bailey born at parehaka, I was given her name when I was born, Mihi Momao, she also gave the Surname Tapuaone but I cant seem to find it anywhere, except an obituary in an opunake newspaper, and there is very little info to that. Id love to find out more about the Baileys, kia ora Mihi

Kia Ora Mihi,
I'm Wendy's sister...would be happy to look into things for you, the names Mihi Momao or Tapuaone doesn't ring a bell with me? Do you have a date of birth for your Nan? There must be a connection somewhere??? Interesting stuff!
We do have family connections to Parihaka, but more so in Waitara. We're the Wanganui branch of the family.
Feel free to e-mail me - jllusis@ihug.co.nz
