Kia ora greg spencer,

Hopefully here birth certificate will have the iwi information on it for you. If it does not, you could try doing a search for "Ngai Tahu" in the links section and contact them to see if they know anything - they have a whakapapa research unit.

Good luck!

Nau te raurau,
Naku te raurau,

Kia ora ano greg spencer,

Good luck with finding the birth certificate!

Make sure you have read (under the menu "Were to Start" in the Whakapapa Club) the korero about Births, Deaths and Marriages as you may not be able to find a birth certificate at the Register of DBM so that korero will give you other options and suggestions of where to look .

What is the New Zealand Maori Women's Register? I have never heard of it, but if it is another avenue for finding information, I would be most appreciative if you could let us know what it is and where to find it!

Nau te raurau,
Naku te raurau,
