Kia ora,

I am the grandaughter of Mita Tipene (1920-1960?) who passed away when my mother and sister were at a young age. My Grandmother Carol Peihopa/Ashby(D)and Mita Tipene had two daughters, my mother Caron and her sister Elizabeth. He is Ngapuhi from Motatau Marae, may have other children, and may be resting in the Mangarei Cemetary? Does anyone have a photos of him? Is there any close relatives that could give me information? Please Help!It would be much appreciated if I could have any information connected to my grandfather.

All I know is that he is from Motatou and lived in Aucks. Please Help!
