Tena Koe Jenna!
Have you tried the Poa Whanau in Te Awamutu the hospital may have been Tokanui.
Try looking in the Old Friends too!!

Kia Ora Jenna, my name is Tania and my grandfather is George Poa, but I don't think it is the same one you are asking about. I will ask my Aunty for any information and I will pass this on to you tomorrow.

Kia Ora Jenna, Good news!!!! My Aunty is aware of who you are looking for. There are two ways we can tackle this situation, 1st: you can give your contact details and she will take them to the whanau you are looking for and they will contact you, 2nd you can ring my aunty if you wish and she will fill in all the blanks for you, the choice is yours.

Congratulations you are on your way to finding your whanau!!!!!

Hi my name is Kris and I know I'm way late reading YR message but it's so funny I just logged on 4 the 1st time in a couple of years doing this as I got better on the computer, I happen 2 B looking at some paper work I got in 2001 and found the 2 names U wrote.
Taima is (Dick) married 2 Mari is (Molly Henare from Pauerenga)
did U manage 2 get the info U were looking 4 on them?
I mayB wrong about the connection but if not I have a small part of their Tamariki decending from Hauariki Poa married to Maraea Terangi.
These names R on the oldish side though so I hope I'm not throwing a red herring at U. Interested leave message on line.

Kia ora Miriama,  we are currently tracing our whakapapa back, as this was something my father begun before he suddenly passed. Im wondering if any of your whānau knew a Walter Poa. He'd be in his 80s now. He and his whānau moved to Auckland in the late 50's. Any help will be greatly appreciated.
