TUI, Arthur: Looking for Great Grandfather or any relation

Kia Ora

I am searching for anyone who is related to my great grandfather Arthur Tui, or anyone related to a Tui. I believe that Arthur Tui's father died around 1915-1922, I am not sure of his name but have a feeling it's Wiremu. I think the family comes from around the hamilton area maybe or it could be the south island?
If anyone knows anything to do with this whanau please let me know, I am deseprate to find my whanau, and where I come from, iwi etc

Tena koe Philly,

Kia kaha - be strong

If you go to http://www.familysearch.org and put Tui in the surname, setting the country to New Zealand, you will find quite a few. It may take a while, but see if you can match any of the names with names that you already know. NOTE: not all of the information in that site is accurate, but it is a good place to start
