‘The Power’s’ - New Zealand film Company to Visit Dungarvan

‘The Power’s’  - New Zealand film Company to Visit Dungarvan

Are you a POWER? If so prepare to meet what might be distant cousins on, Wednesday 15th of January. Waterford County Museum Dungarvan has been contacted by a branch of the Power family in New Zealand who are keen to meet any Powers on the night. Robbie Neha is the gentleman that has made contact with us. He will outline the history of their particular branch of the family in Hamilton New Zealand.
Robbie gives us the following information; I am a Television Producer/Director and I am currently researching for a historic Documentary on my Great, Great Grandfather Thomas Power who we understand came from County Waterford, Ireland. I will be visiting County Waterford from the 13th to the 17th of January, 2020. We will be bringing a delegation of 6 people which will include my 82 year old Aunty Miria Tauariki and my 64 year old Uncle Thomas Roa [both of whom have been desperate to visit your County - the origin of their mutual Great Grandfather all their lives].
Our group will also include a Camera Crew of three people - Murray Maunder, Corey Wilson and our Researcher Willie-John Newton where we hope to document and record our trip to County Waterford to trace the origins of our Ancestor Thomas Power and film places of interest in regards to the Power family. On arrival in County Waterford, it would be our honour to provide a public presentation on our findings to date on Thomas Power, his storied life in New Zealand, our relationship to him and we will explain our Documentary's intentions and findings thus far.   If you have any people of interest you think I should be in touch with, particularly a Power Family Historian or relation.’ Robbie’s genealogical details are brief and on the night much more will be revealed. Part of his line which he gave us runs like this: Rahapa Te Hauata - Thomas Power - Kahutoi Power [nee Kaukau]   Tanirau Paiaka .
Much more will be revealed on the night; this presentation will take place on Wednesday 15th January at 7.30 pm. At the Dungarvan Sailing Club. Robbie will make a presentation and outline the history of his Thomas Power. There is no admission charge to this. Families wishing to attend might contact us, as soon as possible 058 45960, or email us history@waterfordmusuem.ie.
