Can anyone help me trace my grandfathers whakapapa. I do not know anything of where he orginates and there are alot of confilicting stories that have been told to me in regards to his whanau and I am really confused and lost. All I know is that his wifes' name (my grandmother) was MEREANA TAITIMU. They used to reside in Manurewa at Mcannelly St down the road from the Bellbird. I am unsure as to where they used to live up north prior to this but any information about my grandfather would be greatly appreciated. It is not easy going through life not knowing your roots or that of your whanau.
Tena koe tarn,
If you make sure you are in the Whakapapa Club then put POA in the search box (top right hand corner) you will find some whanau with the Poa surname. Maybe they would be able to awhi you
