I am not too sure if any of these links will awhi you in the endless search for whakapapa, but they are korero from the Whakapapa Club Archives - they may help to fill in the gaps 😀

You are most welcome! 😀

The Whakapapa club has resources that are not in the Papa Panui and even I am surprised sometimes with what I can find in there!

You should also do a search at the Whakapapa Club - the name Matenga appears in 17 lists - lists are exactly that, for example lists of names from newspaper clippings, urupa, whakapapa sites - a wealth of info 😀

You never know who you will find in them! :thumbup:
