My father knows your whanau - his cousin is Bill Wharekawa. Bill is living in Bondi, Sydney. Would you like an address to make contact with Bill Wharekawa.

Thank you for replying. I'm so grateful. Unfortunately I"m not familiar with your koro Percy or Mum Piki but I will pass your Dad and Mum's name on to my Mum. Are you able to go back a generation and tell me more about your koro's side, who your koro's father or ancestors are? Perhaps this information might be able to assist you. As mentioned in my email, my koro's name is Tawhia WHAREKAWA. My koro's father is Wharekawa TE MAIHI and my koro's mother is Pikake HIMI. Koro Tawhia's brothers are: Ngatitaha; Te Tarawa; Te Kira; Parekura and Manuera (Tommy). The reason for seeking this information is that my family have commenced a family tree database containing whakapapa my Dad (Stanford MATTHEWS) has gathered on some of the Wharekawa whanau but sadly we have a lot of information gaps especially in relation to Ngatitaha or Parekura WHAREKAWA's family. Thank you once again for replying. I look forward to hearing from you.

Tena Koutou Katoa,
I heard one of our Rangatahi[RIMA] asking for 'AWHI', because he did not know where his Koro was from,and it seems as though he was completely ignored. Is that what our TUPUNA would like to see?
Pikake[f] [1] was born in Taupo, and had a daughter who they named Pikake[2].Rima's mother was named after his kuia. His grand father's name was POHE WHAREKAWA.
na,
Manu
