Kiora everyone.

I am trying to find a place up north called PARAPUWHA as i have tried everywhere that I can think of to locate this place. One of my ancestors come from this area and so would like to know where it is. I do hope someone can help me. Kiora

Hi there Kina,

Thankyou for that. I am uncertain if the spelling I gave is correct or not as the spelling of the area came from one of the signatures that is on the Treaty of Waitangi. As you can guess that was my ancestor but I had never heard of Parapuwha before and mayde it was Parawhau. I will just have to check if he was there or not. Once thankyou for your help
