Kia ora all,

In our old Forum we had a discussion regarding Wi Poutu and who his biological Father was ( Maxwell)

I am now hoping to reconnect with the man from Wanganui who sent me some whakapapa and oral history

regarding that question or anyone else who is able to shed new light on the subject

Much thanks


ps I have reread the old posts but his reply was via PM which cannot be retrieved

Kia ora,

Ko Julie Nyman ahau. I married into the Poutu Whanau. My children are 4th generation Maxwell's. Wi Poutu's biological father was Robert Maxwell. I note you are reconnecting with a man from Whanganui, I was bought up there and I have whanau who still live there. I have the whakapapa and I'm happy to share that with you if you haven't received info as this an old post. My email address is manaakitanga@hotmail.com

Nga mihi.
