Kia ora to all. I am looking for the whakapapa on the parents of my great grandfather, TUREI BROWN. He married my great grandmother MARAEA PUHA who constructed the Tukutuku Panels at the Hoani Waititi Marae, she was the daughter of Hakopa Puha and Tangitaera Ngatoro. Can anyone please help me in this matter of finding out the names of my great grandfathers parents?

greetings The name Turei Brown appears in land share registers for Tairawhiti blocks Tokata A13 & Whetumatarau A these two land blocks are at Te Araroa East Cape the name Maraea Puha also still appears in land share registers to land blocks also from the Te Araroa East Cape region if you go to www.maorilandonline.govt.nz & enter their names in the search screen the land blocks will come up click on the block name than click on the owner details it's a start.
now I'm a little vague but I believe that Ngati Porou had some involvement in Hoani Waititi Marae. cheers
