Hola!!! Soy Marta, hija de Javier y de Beln residente en Espaa. La verdad es que no imagine que pudiera existir una historia como la vuestra, ya que desde hace un ao aprox. tengo la idea de irme a vivir a NZ en un futuro espero no muy lejano. Todo esto surgi desde que vi a los AllBlacks y empec a interesarme en vuestra cultura maori, y ahora descubro que no estamos tan alejados como cabria esperar con respecto a la distancia, sino que nos unen lazos de sangre (aunque sea muy lejana). No me quiero entretener ms, slo quera expresar la alegra y el orgullo que siento por esta agradable noticia y el respeto hacia vosotros. No me quiero enrollar ms. Si alguno de vosotros quisiera contactar o si no le importara contarme acerca de vosotros, estara encantada. Os dejo mi email: meseguer1988@hotmail.com P.D.: Siento no poder escribir en ingls, ya que no tengo el nivel suficiente. Saludos desde Espaa. Viva Espaa!! Viva NZ!!

Kia Ora, My knowledge has only been limited to the Olive Branches book until I found this site. I have a lot of reading to do. We are from Tapita Te Herekaipuke and Manuel who had Elizabeth then married Manuel Lima, who then had Maria Lima who married Auiti Haenga, who had Lee who is my grandfather who is deceased. It's nice to fill in the gaps. kia ora ano.

Hi to everyone. I just stumbled on this site by typing 'wiremu kouka' into google search. Would anyone be able to help me with ancestry of Wiremu Kouka and his wife Ani Paku Taiapa, please. I have a list of their children but some of my details are not accurate, and I have few dates. My son is descendant of Wiremu on his fathers side. Thanks.

Kia Ora, My grandmother is Materoa Black (nee Manuel). Her parents were Karaitiana Manuel and Sarah Campbell. Can anyone tell me more about Sarah. I'd like to find her urupa and gather more information about her. As mother of 11 children, I believe there is much to learn about her life, but my searching is proving difficult and all I'm getting is silence. Any information will be worthwhile. Kia ora koutou

My name is Anne-Marie Collier and have recently found this website while trying to trace my family tree. How exciting when I see a reference from 2003 by Waiana Collier mentioning my grandparents names....... Henry Tyler Richard Coller and Thelma Cecelia Collier. My parents are Roger and Colleen Collier. My father had brothers .... Paul, Dick (both deceased) and youngest Ted (Edward). His sisters Pat, Ann and Jean. As for Crystal Collier.....I think your dad could have been my uncle Dick (Richard) who separated from his first wife Kaye after having children Viki, Mark and Tony. I think he then went on to another relationship and had a daughter. He died approx age late 30's. I have 3 grown children and 5 grandchildren. If anyone wishes to contact me regarding whanau ...... my email address is ..... annemarie.collier@yahoo.co.nz

Thanks you all so much for your aroha over the past few weeks. Just to update you: Dad is still in hospital, but making a good recovery. His doctors are pleased with his progress. The boys are all pretty much recovered, and just need to get some muscle back! We will be having a kawemate for Mum around mid-year. We will keep you posted on that. My apologies for the non-updating of this site. We'll get on to that too, I promise! We have so many great photos of the Fiesta that we need to share, so keep checking back :) Noho ora mai, Peggy

Blessed are they that mourn: for they shall be comforted. Blessed are the pure in heart: for they shall see God. I would like to share with all the Manuel Jose whanau a letter of commiseration for Bob and Vivienne McConnell, their children and grand children that was sent to me from Puri Alvarez and David Pepperell of Pukerua Bay, Porirua, NZ. Dated 18th January 2008. It reads: Dear Douglas and the whole of the Jose family in Te Araroa, First of all, thanks for your call. It was very special to us that you took the trouble to let us know personally about the tragedy that is still taking place for the people of Te Araroa as a consequence of the accident where Bob, Vivienne and some of their grandchildren were involved. We are very sad that Vivienne's beautiful life ended so abruptly, especially when our very recent memories of her are so vivid and full of her energy, command, light and life... We are even more saddened by knowing that Bob is still in hospital, his future uncertain, and that one of the children is battling to recover... We do not have enough words to express our shock and sadness. Please, be reassured if that is of any help that we are together with you on this loss that although not so close to us as it is to you, it is also our loss. It is a loss also to those on the New Zealand Spanish community and also in Spain itself who came to know your community, this Jose family that has become a treasure to us all. I can say that in their name as well as in ours. We wish that the legacy of Vivienne continues on the future and that our families, that have just come together as a result of this incredible woman's efforts and persistence, continue celebrating the reunion that she and others made possible. Thus, as much as we mourn her loss, we celebrate her existence and the many gifts she showered all of us with. We are sending some information we had around about Asturias and Spain for the Jose's family collection. We do hope that someone else will carry the work that Vivienne started and that this amazing miracle that has already happened continues. We'll be with you in our spirit not in person when the time to say goodbye to Vivienne comes. Also we send our hope that the living survivors of the accident will still have the chance to live a healthy life despite the sadness of losing Vivienne. Please, pass on our deepest sympathy to all the Jose family and the Te Araroa community at large. A big hug to all of you from us, Puri and David

The whole family of Manuel Jose Valverde-Majano of this very sad with the news of the death of Vivienne. We would like to express our sorrow and pain at all Panioras. Vivienne undoubtedly did much to the meeting of the panioras with his family Valverde. When I came to Valverde gave the book Olive Branches, will be certainly a gift that keeps always in my heart. We want the quick recovery of Bob and her grandchildren. We wish Bob and the entire family of Vivianne much strength to overcome their loss. Certainly from heaven will be happy to see the miracle of the encounter between New Zealand and Panioras Valverde. With much love. Aroanui. Santiago Garcia Ayuso. Valverde of Majano. Toda la familia de Manuel-Jose de Valverde del Majano esta muy triste con la noticia de la muerte de Vivienne. Queremos expresar nuestra pena y dolor a todos los Panioras. Sin duda Vivienne hizo mucho por el encuentro de los Panioras con su familia de Valverde. Cuando vinisteis en agosto a Valverde me regalasteis el libro Olive Branches. Sera un regalo que siempre guardare en mi corazon. Deseamos la rapida recuperacion de Bob y sus nietos. Deseamos a Bob y toda la familia de Vivianne mucha fuerza para superar su perdida. Sin duda desde el cielo sera feliz de ver el milagro del encuentro entre los Panioras de Nueva Zelanda y Valverde. Con mucho amor. Aroanui. Santiago Ayuso Garcia. Valverde del Majano.

"Kua hinga te kowhai whakamarumaru o nga paripari o Whetumaterau" The majestic kohai tree on the cliffs of Whetumaterau has fallen. The Manuel Jose whanau mourns the sudden passing away of one of its most active family member in Vivienne (Toodles) McConnell (Nee Hovell) Together with her husband Bob, they have been at the forefront of reseaching, compiling documents on our whakapapa and organising whanau reunions. Toodles has been a tower of strength for the whanau not only for the Manuel Jose whanau but also in her endless research into the whakapapa and history of our Hovell whanau. Our thoughts and deepest condolence goes out to Bob, their children and grand-children during this time of soul searching, deep sadness and immense lost. Toodles will be sadly missed at reunions and in particular in and around her papa-kaenga Te Araroa. Moe mai e kui, Moe mai i roto i o matua tupuna Rest in peace our respected elder, rest in peace with ancestors. Moe mai i roto i te Ariki, nana nei nga mea katoa Rest in peace with God, Author of everything.
