trying to fing some information for my son, His Great grandmother was Maori and was one of 3 maori triplets born in then early 1900's
Her name was Eden king (her whanau may have been kingi) We have no information on her, one of her sisters died aged 8 and the other (we think) went to england. We have been told their whanau MAY have come from the Taranaki Region. This however has not been confirmed.
I would greatly appreciate ANY information that might help us in our search.

Kia ora nzisis,

Here are a few suggestions that may help you in your search.

Do you know when she died? If you do, you could get a “photocopy” (digital image) as these are ideal for genealogical purposes, cheaper than an actual “Certificate” and can include additional information such as the informant and occasionally notes in the margin. You could also search the cemeteries records - there are links to the NZ ones in the links section here.

If you know when she died, you can also search in the MLC (Maori Land Court) records around that time to see if there were succession orders that went through.

The death photocopy will also have her parents names on it, so do another post with their names in the topic. It could also show iwi, which will give an indication as to which rohe (area) she is from.

Good luck and let us know how you get on

Kia ora ano nzisis,

If you go to http://www.whitepages.co.nz and do a search for the surname sirett (there are no results with sirrett so I tried removing letters) you will get 11 listings. You could try phoning them to see if any do the whakapapapa and if so, if they have Elizabeth Sirrett on the tree.

If you are in Auckland, you could go to Archives NZ (On the Mt Wellington Highway) as they hold school rolls and you may be able to find her in thre, as well as her siblings.

Also, what was her married name, as members here may know that whanau and be able to help through those avenues

I live in Scotland. My grandmother's name was Nora Kingi and she came to Scotland with my grandfather (who was Scottish and had emigrated to New Zealand some years earlier) and their two children (including my father) just before WW2. Her parents were John Kingi and Elizabeth Sirett. However, I note that you believe Nora had died - could it have been the other sister instead? Also, I have a date of birth of 22/5/05 although this may not be accurate.

Kia Ora material...we must be whanaunga hehehe

Kingi Rotoaatara married Rawinia (Kaka) Christie & it was their kids that took on either the King or Kingi name (their fathers first name), my great grandfathers generation. My grandfather is one that kept the King name but some of his brothers changed back to Kingi..hence my whaanau in Mangakino. So yeah...thats the korero with our King/Kingi whaanau.

As for the name Eden King, it doesnt ring any bells with our King/Kingi whaanau, but who knows at the moment I can't recall every name of the whakapapa.

Ah well, he paku awhina noa iho tenei.
ma te wa.
