Kia ora

I know the Maihi whanau is a large whanau but can anyone tell me where in Nga Puhi are the Maihi Whanau from. My great grandfather was Patoromu Weneti Maihi,and somewhere along the line the name changed to Marsh , which is my maiden name.

Kia Ora Moana,

My grandmother married a Maihi from Ahipara. Hori Wairama Maihi. The whanau is large as he had two other whanau before he married my grandmother. This part of the Maihi whanau live in Auckland. I am still in the midst of this whakapapa. Drop me a line if you like and i'll give you the whakapapa that i have on line .....kia ora
