New Member

Hi, I'm looking for my whakapapa, iwi, marae etc. Hori Komene Manihera and Ellen (Erena) had my grandmother - Mere. Mere was born at Wangaroa Habour and went to school at St James School in Keri Keri. We have family land in Waimahana. Any help greatly appreciated!

Kia ora e hoa,
I recognise your name, I know of your whanau, but I would have to ask my aunty for the whakapapa as I am not to familiar with that side.
We also have family land at Waimahana. My mother is a Broughton- Rika-Heke, and my father is a Williams (from Te ngaere).
If I get any whakapapa that relates to you I will make sure to post it.

Kia ora,suz
I have heard alot of the Komene whanau in my early days back home but have been here since a young man but remember the name Bill Komene, I'will contact my whanau and ask them when i go home on the 16th sept 2006. try typing your whanau's name into the maori land courts in.... whagnarei office. i did that and your falls names came up on a list of shareholders names included on land my father had shares in....might be worth a try ........that goes for all maori....I certainly got a surprise as to how whanau names came up...good luck.....we are the kereama's....we are from pawarenga area i think thats how you spell it
