HEKE, Matire: Looking for whanau
We are looking for whanau of my mother in law Matire Heke who was born in Kaeo, up North. She married a Bellas and had five children, Lionel, Joe, Maryanne, Hemi and Freddy. They separated and she moved to Kawerau. Some of the children were placed in foster care. We would love to sort out whakapapa for our children so any help would be really appreciated!
