I am wanting find out about my g/mother. Her name was Mina Paora/Paora from Matauri Bay Northland. Because my mum was very young when she passed away and bought up by whanau. With a family of my own both myself and moko need to learn about my g/mothers whanau/brothers/sisters.
I would appreciate anything that anyone may know.
Thank you

Tena koe Makarita,
Perhaps you might already know. The whanau Paora is linked with Te Ngaere marae (Ngai Tupango hapu), just a little north of Matauri, in Wainui. I was told the whakapapa when I went to Henare Paora's tangi some 7 years ago, some of the whakaahua on the paatu are of Paora Paora and his uri. It might be worth a try. However, if you aware of this info, then disregard mine. Kia ora.
