Kia Ora te whanau,
Looking for any info on my greatgrandfather, I'am pretty sure he came from (Whangaroa)rohe as we are in Otangaroa&Waihapa blocks. My ggrandmothers name is Mereana Hataraka. Koro might of had a bro metio minarapa, a korero a kuia gave me a long time ago.I have a strong urge to head north,but some direction would be great!

Kia ora Jason
I am married to your cousin Christine,who is a Whittle from Whakatane.Her mum and dad are Georgina and Joe.
I found those papers,which are from the maori land court regarding Metio and it names his wives,children and mokopuna.It was evidence for his share of Mokoia island.Also have some whakapapa of Mereana(hand written notes copied from one of the whanau).Let me know your e-mail address and I'll try and send thru as an attachment;otherwise if you want I'll just post the info thru here.
