HOHEPA, Papanui Turei  

New Member

Trying to find out information about my Dad.

He was adopted into the Mackie whanau and was given the name Robert (Bob) Turei Mackie. He grew up in Rotorua.

All I know is he was born in Putararu in 1947.
His birth name was Papanui Turei Hohepa II or III.

Hay! My father, the late Pene Turei Hohepa. As i can recall had a younger brother who was adopted out to the Mackie family. I had met him once when i was small in Newcastle, Australia. Knew him as 'Uncle Bobby'. If that sounds familiar, I can find out more from my mum and from dads family.
