Kia ora Jtek. My name is Marlene.Norman is also my father. I am 40 years old(be 41 in a few month's).I never got to know our father very well as he and my mum parted before i was born. However i did meet him and although it was only for 2 weeks 17 years ago i was rapped. All my life i never had a dad and even though he was'nt @ when i was growing i will hold dearly those memories of our dad always. For a number of years i have been looking for our father. Unfortunatrely i have had no luck in finding him, an it has been a long lonely journey for me. The path to find our father has not been easy but i'm not going to give up. Im stoked i came across your panui, i think maybe this was meant to be. I'm no witchdoctor but i truly believe everything happens for a reason. If it is alright with you and you dont mind i would like to walk this walk with you to learn our whakapapa for you and your whanau and for my children and my mokopunas and myself. I would really like to get to know our whanau from King Country. I guess i've been bleating on for a while, i hope to hear from you soon, but If i don't i'll understand. I had a good life growing up, and i don't regret it. That's all i have to say. You and your whanau take care.
Kiaora Pono.This is my understanding of the whakapapa you are looking for.

Even though my user name has changed, its still me "jtek", just "jtekhaula" now.
Firstly, I have to thank everyone for their response to my post a couple of years ago! I have to admit that I'am absolutely over-whelmed by the help that everyone has given me, in regards too my Whakapapa and with helping me find my whanau, I'am truly speechless.
Also I would like too apologise for my lack of response too anyone but after a while of trying I admit that I lost hope. But now that after so much time I finally have another look, I promise that I will very regularly be watching this and talking to you all.
Forgive me, and I look forward to ANY response.
Hello R K M!
I tried to e-mail you directly but I dont think it went through? If you could contact me that would be awesome!
I'am very interested in making contact with you in the near or distant future. Like I say, I tried to e-mail personally but there we go.
I'am opened minded about everything and I'm sure we might be able to help each other out, in more ways than one.Please!
