Kia ora,

If you go to [url= http://www.familysearch.org/eng/]Family search[/url] and put puni in the Last name box, change the country to New Zealand and hit the search you will find a record for Mere. It is not much but hopefully it will give you a bit more information for your kete 🙂

Also, have a look in the [url= http://whakapapa.maori.org.nz/archives/]Wakapapa Club Research Archives[/url] - put one name in and then check out all of the posts.

You could also try the [url= http://whakapapa.maori.org.nz/directories/]Whakapapa Club eMail directories[/url] - you never know who you will find!

Good luck! 😀
