Hi trying to find my whakapapa. My granddad Leonard had a full blood Maori mother who came from Ngai Tahu, but can't find any listing of her name anywhere. If any one can help me trace this your help would be gratefully accepted.

In reference to Leonard Mehlhopt. I believe I may have interviewed his sister, a Hine Mehlhopt in 1988, while researching a documentary about Lake Ellesmere. She was from Taumutu, so suggest you contact the Mehlhopt's there.
