Kia ora Shayemerald
if you go to the top of this page, and click on Names being Researched, then type Tipene in to the Search list, it will birng up 3 other posts of whanau searching for Tipene connections.
Have a read through there, as a starting point.

Kia ora I have a uncle and his name is Albert Tipene. He resides at Taniwha a small place about 30 minutes out of Huntly. Could be the same whanau.

The Tipene whanau is a large whanau, especially in The Nga Puhi area, If he is Nga Puhi you may also want to try contacting a Tipene from Motatou which is palce just outside Moerewa, they may be able to help.

Kia Ora Shayemerald, is it possible that the other sisters name is Mereana, as I recently had a conversation over cell in regards to who she was and who I am, as I to am a Tipene, my father being from Motatau where ever that is.

Kia Ora Eileen I have read your post to Shayemerald, its quite unique that I posted naming my grandparents whom you have named, do you have more iinfo or a web site that i may be able to look at. If you are able to send me a e-mail then maybe we can keep in contact as I do not have much info about the whanau.
