MATHEWS or TE RORE: Bio info from Rangi Point
I am writing a book/screenplay on my mother's life and am looking for anyone who has grown up, went to school, or just knows her or any whanau. My connections I need information on are for my mum Norah (aka Hine) Mathews, Great-grandfather Hune Te Rore, Great grandmother Merianna (Tipene) Te Rore, Kahi (Gus) Te Rore, Bey Te Rore, Tone Te Rore, John (aka Jack or Hone) Mathews...
All I have are stories from my mum and would like to get more from outside...
