Kia ora Debzone,
What an awesome collection of people you have on your whakapapa site. I wasn't able to determine the area the Rapana whanau you mention are from.
As you no doubt realise the Rapana whanau are huge and have their roots planted all over the North Island from Wellington to Bay of Plenty (where my grandfather is from - Ngati Te Takinga) to Northland. This will help to refine your search.
The closer you get to Rotorua the more likely it is I can help. Keep up the great work!
