Kia ora NgatiMaori,
If you go to www.familysearch.org and put Paraha in the surname and set the country to New Zealand you will find a lot of Paraha whanau. I have had a quick look and there is a listing for a Ratuhi PARAHA and you would probably recognise other names as well. You can try this process for the Mohi Whanau name also, or search for the surname that is stated as the spouse on the Ratuhi PARAHA record as well.
You need to be aware that not all of the records at familysearch are accurate, in regards to names, dates, places, but they give a good place to start.
Good luck and let us know how you get on
Nau te raurau,
Naku te raurau,
Ka ora ai nga tangata!
Together we will get there!
Kia Ora Whanua,
Interesting I have just returned from NZ and while there had a quick tiki tour around Northland. I actually took a photo of my great grandmothers gravestone - Ratuhi. I have two sets of whakapapa obtain from Annie Hiku(deceased) who was a daughter of Ani, younger sister of Maria. Now my mum was the daughter of Kahumakaka (youngest daughter) and was actually brought you by Oti Tuhua & Ratuhi in her early years so I can ask her specific questions you might have re: the smiths, joyces , hikus , pickerings and rest of the tuhua mohis...
Kia ora whanau
I am the youngest grand daughter of the youngest son Kawhena Maraea and Ani were my fathers elder sisters. Lee anne is my neice. Oti and Te Ratuhi were my grand parents. Stan kia ora mai koe we are going to kerikeri and I would love to meet my fathers sister, my aunty. Email me if you would
