TARAPATA . Looking for real Grandfather

My name is Desiree TARAPATA. My fathers name is Taunga Wipani TARAPATA, mothers name Janet Whakarongo TARAPATA (TE AHURU), they are now both deceased. My siblings and I have been trying to track our Grandfather down for some time now and have been given very little information.
My Grandmother is still alive and has not told my father who his real dad is or was, so my father was hurt by this because he wanted to know his real father.
We would like to know our extended and unknown family. My Grandmothers name is Tangi MURRAY (TARAPATA/TALBOT) and been told that my real Grandfathers surname is CULLEN.

If you have any information that may help us could you please let me know, thank you for your time, have a great day
