Found what I've been looking for. To Matahuru, Taiga and Tane Ariki. I take notice of what you write and listen with the utmost interest. You have given me the encouragement to keep going and if it wasn't for the many threads of encouragement i would have given up. I now have found my Tupuna, Hapu and Iwi and I am estatic Thank-you.
Heres how it started.
I went to MLC with a friend I had no intensions of looking for my Tupuna because I was there helping my friend who was trying to trace her tupuna.
But of cause curiousity won me over and I just had to have another look at my mothers files. I got them and sat down at the table ready to open it when I remembered in one of your guys many threads,
I can't remember which one of you three wrote it" you said to say a karakia before you start, I did that" and no sooner had i open the file, the paper was there just looking at me, waiting for me, I'm as sure as it is daylight it was meant for me. I couldn't beleive my luck. So thats I would like to say. Thank-you for that encouragement. Now the hard task begins. Trying to unravel all the names ha ha ha. If I run into a brick wall can I call on your help. Nga just kidding.
