Kia ora whanaunga,
My Name is Anahera Russell nee Kowhai. I was whangai'd by Maki and Bill Kowhai. Maki is the youngest daughter of Kahupeka and Tukere Thompson. My birth father is Mano Oppert, who is a son of Ringa Thompson.
Its awesome to meet new whanaunga!
Kia ora my name is Liz Walters nee Thompson my siblings and I have recently suceeded land that was left to us. Which has brought me to knowledge of my Grandparents and Great grandparents. My Grandfathers name was William(Pote) Thompson he married my Grandmother Mary Thompson nee Takerei from Ngati Maniapoto they had 3 children my dad Simon, and his brothers David and Lenny which have all passed. My Grandfather died when my Dad and his siblings were very small. Through the succession, I found that my Great Grandfather Rewi Te Aho Tamihana descends from Ngati Paoa/Kaiaua on my Grandfathers Birth certificate it says that their tribal connections are Ngati Maru after researching that I found that this could be either Ngati Paoa or Taranaki. My Great Grandmother Emma Maaka descends from Ngati Pikiao, Mourea, Rotorua.
If anyone has any knowledge could you please contact me through message.
