MOANA, Jock Te Hau: Ngati Makirangi

Kia ora koutou, i am doing some research on my my grandad. His name was Jock Moana and married Parehiko Henare (Waiti Marae, Ngati Makirangi te Hapu).
His sister was Beauty Wilson, Mary and another brother. I believe they grew up in Te Hoe o Tainui and Tahuna (Waikato).
Any assistance would be appreciated.
kia ora mai

Kia ora whanau,
My niece and i have done some research at the Maori Land Court and have made some interesting discoveries. My grandads last name was amotawhiri (originally) instead of Moana. He had 3 brothers and 2 sisters. His dad was Te Ngahuru Amotawhiri.
Therefore if any know of the Amotawhiri whanau or Te Ngahuru whanau, please let me know.
Kia ora mai

Kia ora Hakaboy,

If you make sure you are at the Whakapapa club then put amotawhiri in the top right hand box of the page then click the Search The Records you will find an Amotawhiri listed in the people directory

Nau te raurau,
Naku te raurau,
Ka ora ai nga tangata!
Together we will get there!
