Kia ora my name is Elizabeth and I am new to this but here goes. I am wondering if we are family as my grandmother was Kereihi but known as "Gracie or Grace" Herewini and she too married a Himi te Waahi Pukeroa they lived all their married life in Manukau (Herekino) not Auckland. And like you I am looking to trace my family.
My grandmother is from Te Hapua and my grandfather is from Manukau but the Pukeroa line is in Tauroa (Ahipara).
I will be most interested if you can make any connection.
Kia ora.

Tena koe Te Kuta,

Ae marika!
I havent hear Stanley James name for a while. Hoi ano, I knew of your grandfather and grandmother very well. Is his wifes name Ani or Anne. As my grandparents use to talk about your grandparents quite alot. There is still a number of people still alive today. I didnt realise that Ripeka Pukeroa had Stanly James. Did your grandparents stay at Ruawai? As they used to come to Tinopai in the Kaipara. There is quite alot of korero and also as I mentioned beforehand quite a number of people still alive that knew them both. Are you able to tell me where they were both buried? As we had lost contect with the both of them, when they left the Kaipara. I actually wouldnt mind meeting with if you lived in Auckland. As Im doing some research on the church that both your grandparents were in at some stage.
Kanui tenei wa. Email me back.
Naku noa, na

Kia Ora Whanau

This is all new to me but if you're looking for Pukeroa connections, I have quite a bit. I've been doing my mama's side for like a month now and I found bits and pieces here and there now I just need to fill in the gaps and I'm sure we can all help each other to do this. I have the names of the fourteen children of Henare Pukeroa and Ramari H. Davidson or Blake who are my great great grandparents.

Kia Ora Whanau,
I'd like to help-I'm still in the process of filling in the missing links myself.Please refer to the post/request i made in the Te Kanawa link for the connection with Te Pukeroa line.

Any help will be much appreciated.

My Goal for all this searching is to make a bonafide referenced book with all the necessary details to do with Tarutaru and Ruapounamu's line forward. It's such a shame to loose all this information with the loss of our dear loved ones.

With your info and mine we can put them into the same basket to benefit the whole whanau and future generations.

Naku Noa
Jai
