I am searching any thing to do with my Koro Koro Koro Wiremu Hurae, all I know is that he married my nanny Ngawhira Iharaira. I have been told that Wiremu Hurae was from the Taupo area. I know that they had my grand nanny Rongoimawhiti. there was 9 of them that I know of and they are tiniwa, Timoti, Tama, Joy, Connie, Ngaire, Heeni, Waitapu and my nanny Rongoimawhiti. If any of these names that you recongise I would be greatly happy to find out any information.
Kia ora Rwilson. I am Timoti Hurae's grandaughter. I have just found my Hurae roots in a town called Waitahanui which is just out of Taupo. I advise you to go to the local marae there and you will be informed of your whakapapa. I went there just this weekend and was blown away by the amount of help I was given. I was taken to the uru pa and was shown the graves of the names you mention. They are looking for the decendents of the Hurae whanau at this moment. make yourself known. Kia kaha
Kia Ora New member, you didnt leave a name. wow really, My mother is also the grand daughter but to Timoti Hurae sister, rongomawhiti Wall nee Hurae. I am so happy that someone has replied. I was down in Taupo at the beginning of this month but for another reason, had a tangi on the Oruanui side. I really wanted to be there for looking for my roots. I do know waitahanui kinda well. my brother is buried there, and so is my nanna. And yes Rongomaiwhiti is my great nanna. I would really like to keep in contact with you as I know that your koro Timoti passed away at an early age, as with his brother tiniwa. thank you for your reply. 🙂 my name is Rebecca
