I am trying to trace any whanau that is related to my Great Great grandmother.I know she had a sister,but cannot remember her name.My Grandmother married Joseph Crocome and they had three children.I know of most relations from that time,however I am now trying to trace back on grandmthers side.
She was Ngai Tahu.

If anyone can help,I would be very grateful.
P/S. There was another name I found that may have been used,and that is Arapera Rauneka.

Thank You. Thelma.

Hi Thelma, I am a descendant of Arapera Raureka (not Rauneka) and Dr. Joseph Crocombe. She was my GGG Grandmother. I only know of my direct line to her, they had a daughter called Jenny or Jane McTaggart (nee Crocombe), who had a son called John McTaggart, who had a daughter Kuia Whale (nee McTaggart) who is my grandmother. So I guess we must be related somehow along the way lol.

Hi Elismum.Thank you so much for replying.We sure are related,as Jane McTaggart was my greatgrandmother and John her son was my grandmothers brother.Grandmas name was Athol Cross (nee McTagart).It is great to have found someone who is related on this side of the family.I hope that we may be able to keep in touch. Thelma.

Hi Thelma, good to hear from you. From what you have said, I worked out that my nana (Kuia) and your mother were first cousins and that would make you and my Mum second cousins. If you would like to email me on elismum@hotmail.com I could give you more information.
