Kia ora Jakz

Just to clarify
Are you able to give more details.

Are you looking for your grandfather on your mothers side or your fathers side?

If your fathers side! Was your grandfather's surname Kuri?
Do you know your grandfathers first name, or any other information?

What was your mothers maiden name?

Any details, even small, may give others some direction to go, and hopeful, be able to give you some info

Tena Koe Jakz,

The Jack Pai that lives in Taumarunui was living in Auckland, he was a builder and he lived at Mangere Bridge his home was on Moutain Road Mangere, His brother died a few years back, his name was Hemi and a sister is still living there and her name is Molly. Jacy Pai is in his 70's if you look in the Telephone book You will find him there and can contact him and find out more.

You gotta ask yourself this Question, Is this Jack Pai related to the Jack Pai I am looking for?

At his age he must know something, and where did he get his name from? and where did the Pai family come from?

Need to know more, feel free to make contact?

Now there may be a connection

E ai ki ooku rongo: Jack Pai was born in 1892. His full name was Tuwareware Hone Haki Pai. He was the son of Wihona Hapimana (1874-1943) and Te Aumihi Watene. Wihona in turn was the son of Rangira Hapimana (1845-1917) and Whatarangi Ngati. Rangira was the last in a family of 4 children to Pataka Te Wharepu (1811-1910)and his wife from Taranaki, Pereniki.

Kia Ora, I was wondering what your name is as I am married to Karlos Kuri, son of Daniel Kuri who was the son of Joseph and Mary Kuri(maiden name Pai). I would be happy to share any information with you if you can explain to me how you are related? As far as my husband and I are aware his grandparents only had the 3 children Alex,Daniel and Fay.

Hi Jakz,

My grandmother was the sister to aunty Mary Kuri. Tell me who is your father, if aunty Mary is your mother? It was not uncle Joe. If you can answer that, then I will give you your grandfather's (my great-grandfather) whakapapa to his english side.
