My father is the oldest son of Tewi Tunoa Roihana his name is Hoani Leonard Lawson (deceased).

Forgive me if I didnt get all their exact some of them have maori first names but I  dont know them all, but this should help anyone to definatively link us or my koro to your whanau group if you are searching.  Is anyone able to give me any info about my koro Tewi WW2 days where he went etc...
