Kia ora

If you go to http://www.familysearch.org then click on search and put Hoete in the Last Name and set the country to New Zealand you will find a record for Martha as well as other records for the Hoete Whanau.

through those records you may be able to find a bit for info!

Note: not all info in the familysearch site is accurate, but it is a good place to start.

Also, make sure you are in the Whakapapa Club and do a search there for Hoete - there are a few records and may give you some more leads!

Good Luck

Nau te raurau,
Naku te raurau,

Together we will get there!

Hello {Pono,
Thankyou for your response and for trying to help me. I dont suppose you know of Wiremu Hoete? (who I believe to be related to Maata)?
Good luck with your searching and thanks again.
