TURAHIA MARAE Te Aroha, Paeroa
Kia Ora, In my search for knowledge of my Tupuna I have been told her photograph is at the Turahia Marae in the Te Aroha, Paeroa area. I cannot find a contact for this Marae and would very much appreciate if anyone can help.

Are you speaking of Tirohia Marae possibly as that is the marae between Paeroa and Te Aroha.

Kia ora rlee yes Tirohia must be the Marae I am seeking, please forgive my spelling mistake. This area is a long way from where I live so I would really like to find a contact person/address for this Marae to make enquiries re my Tupuna. Thankyou

Hi suevw, try the Hauraki Maori Trust Board, phone 07 862 7521, as it's been a while since i was out at Tirohia, and they can connect you with someone from there.
