kia ora, Iam looking for any information on my dads whanau, My father was Paul Te kapua Ngawaka ,known as kapua. His mother was Paeroa Ngawaka. I know dad was born in Matahi near Waimana.I know he had two sisters not to sure of the spelling of their names Pemia and ngairanga or ngarangi. The last known place I've been told, my nan may have lived , was Te Teko, That's about all the information I have ,would greatly appreciate any information about any NGAWAKA'S, especially would love to know where my nan and koro are buried. Thank you.

Kia Ora,

I know it's not much but check this link out from Papers Past - it's a sad article but it may help out a bit for you.

All the best on your journey.
