looking wharemate whanau from tautoro bay of island
kia ora Shaun..Ko Gloria toku ingoa. No Te Tai Tokerau ahau.
By now you may already have the information you want ..because the Wharemate family are a big family.
Anyway ..my half sister mother was a Wharemate from Tautoro.. Marara Wharemate.
Unfortunately she is not alive now.. but they are all over the place and afiliate with the marae in Tautoro ..
The person that could help you is Hone Wharemate who is a lecturer in the Maori Department at the University of Auckland. That is his whanau. So you can contact him through the Maori Studies Department there. I do not have a phone number for him but if I see themI will give them your email if you would like to leave it here..
Tena Ora Koe Gloria Whaikawa.
I have a brother inlaw whose mother's maiden name is Wharemate. I do believe she currently lives in Tautoro now. I probably wont see my brother inlaw until the weekend, but I'll pass your nannies details on to him and ask him if it's alright to pass on his details or his mums to you.I do have both their phone numbers and addresses but out of respect for their privacy I will ask them 1st. Hopefully I can get back to you with good news.
