HAARE / PARATENE whanau.
Kia ora witewhiu,
I'm researching the Haare whanau also through my son's mother whakapapa. His nana was Makere [a.k.a. Margaret] Haare whom sadly passed away last year.
Margaret's parent's were Wete Haare and Mere. Wete's father was Haare Neke.
Miriama, Wiremu, Hiria, Katerina, and Rerepeti [a.k.a. Rongo] were siblings of Wete Haare.
Drop us an email if this is the same whanau from Wainui.
Tena koe Hohaia2,
My grandmother was Te Raiti Haare who was the eldest in this whanau. Makere or Margaret was one of my nans sister. We took my nans sister back to Matauri to be buried, right next to her brother. Please email me straight. I would be interested in your connection and finding out more about your son and his mother.

Tena koe e Raniera,
Ae Marika to korero ki a au. After glancing over the Haare whakapapa after my last losting, I noticed Te Raiti Haare was the tukana of Wete's children from his first wife. My son's nana, Margaret was from Wete's second marriage. I have lost touch with my in-laws, but somehow the Haare whanau have links through tupuna via my late mum from Matangirau - Te Touwai. I'll email you as soon as my computer behaves [lol].
Tau Te Rangimarie Ki A Koe Me To Whanau Hoki...
Tena koe e Jane,
My apologies and I stand to be corrected.
Yes you are correct. Mere Paratene, Pakira Paratene, and Takiri Paratene are all siblings.
They have the same father, but different mothers.
Their father had 4 spouses producing 9 issue in total from all 4 spouses.
My son's great grandmother was Mere Paratene.
Again my apologies for the previous posting.
Kiaora, I am a Paratene from Whangaruru. My grandparents were Honeri and Marara Paratene. My dad is Huru, sadly passed away in 1986, My mum is still living. Just thought I would post this anyway. My heart does a little jig when ever I see the name Whangaruru. Be interesting to see where this leads.
Kia ora Lilly,
Ae Marika! Yes, this is the same whakapapa and those are the 4 wives you mentioned. This is my son's whakapapa I am researching via his mum.
It is their husband's first name I am unsure of and can you clarify this for me please.
Is it Pere or Pene?
Look forward to your reply Lilly.
Any other info would be appreciated also.
