Hohepa Hemi KIWIKIWI married Ani RETIMANA. Their six issue were Hohepa, Miria, Moetu, Paora, Weera and Eiwi-Ada. This seems an appropriate place to begin and to tautoko any decendants who wish to trace their whakapapa within the KIWIKIWI, KIWI, RETIMANA and RETI Whanau.

Kia Ora Maori.Org.NZ,

WOW! Just to tell you about how well this works.

My e-mail Inbox is in 'overload mode'. I am pleasantly surprised each day, by the number of people searching for themselves and for who they belong to.

Perhaps the most rewarding 'contact' has been from a 19 year old kotiro, born in England, presently across the ditch. Her mum told her that her father's mother was Ada and she found her grandmother here.

In her words "I'm ESTATIC and SOOOO EXCITED".

Now just how WONDERFUL IS THAT! Tino Rawe aye.

Kia Ora Tatou, na Retimana
