Kia ora everyone,

My name is Jeni Taylor, I'm looking for information about my great grandmother Rita Pauline Snowden of Moerewa. Basically all the information I can find is that she was born in Kaeo in Northland but raised my Nana June Snowden in Moerewa, and that our family is of Ngapuhi decent.

I'm really keen to know of any info regarding our hapu, marae, history, anything really as this part of my life is cloudy for me.

If anyone has any info i'd be really grateful, I can be contacted at jenitaylor01@hotmail.com thanks heaps

Sorry this is so late but only joined up in May. My Aunt married a Snowden(Uncle Henry) from kaeo. He died in the fifties. However the Snowden family are longtime identities of Kaeo. You can get a lot of info from the Kaeo Museum. Also try googling the name Snowden Kaeo NZ
Dont give up
