Kia ora anne.cook

Could you let us know if your father's side is Maori, and if so, do you have an idea what area the whanau is from and the Maori name (where the Maori blood lines come) if known.

If he is not of Maori lines, could you let us know which nationality he is

My father is from a Māori blood line, I have little to go on, as to where my whanau come from on his side, I have heard that Wiremu Tamahana Tarapipi is a great great grandfather,how true this is I don't know?I have more information about my grandmother than my grandfather, I do recall my father saying we have Tipuna in Whanganui district, but he has also said we are Nga Puhi.
