Hi to all those relations out there.
I am one of the great-grand children born to Niri and Keita Whaanga. Niri Whaanga is the grand child of Ihaka Whaanga (1st) and his 3rd wife, whose name I can't recall. Niri is one of approx. 10 children, but most of the girls, his sisters, seem to have died at an early age. He had 16 children, 3 died at an early age also. My grandfather, the 3rd eldest, had 10 children, and my father.
I have most of the Whaanga whakapapa relating to me, as the grandchildren of Niri and Keita had a reunion 4 years ago. I currently live in Melbourne Australia, but some of my whanau live in Mahia, Nuhaka and Wairoa.
It'll be interesting to here about the other Whaanga's.
Keep me informed, please.
