I am doing my whakapapa on my grandmothers side. I am wondering if there is anyone out there who is also researching this whanau, could they please get in touch with me, and we could share. I have direct lineage information, but I also want extended Whanau names, as much as I can get.
would appreciate anything

Tena koe janejune,

If you make sure you are in the Whakapapa Club then put Mariu in the search box at the top right hand corner, you will find a few listings, likewise, if you do the same for Patena.

Also, if you go to www.familysearch.org and search for Mariu, setting the country to New Zealand, you will find listings there, as well as some that say Patena Or Mariu.

Good luck!

Nau te raurau,
Naku te raurau,
Ka ora ai nga tangata!

Tena koe janejune

I'm very familiar with the names PATENA and MARIU both as surnames and, in some cases, firstnames. They're whanau and we all belong to NGATI TUWHARETOA.

Here are some contact that may help in your search:

MAORI LAND COURT
41 Town Centre
TURANGI
Fax: (07) 386 0183

* This is one of the regional Maori Land Courts which holds land block and related whakapapa information. You can find other contact details on the Te Puni Kokiri/Ministry of Maori Development website.

TUWHARETOA TRUST BOARD
Town Centre
TURANGI
Tel: (07) 386 8832

* The whanau here may help you if you say who you are, how you are connected (tupuna & whakapapa) and especially the reason(s) why you want such information.

LIBRARY / POSTOFFICE

* Go to your local library or postoffice and find a telephone book for the Tuwharetoa/Taupo region (I think Taupo/Turangi comes under the Bay of Plenty/Waiariki/Rotorua regional telephone book). The MARIU whanau are prominent within NGATI TUWHARETOA and some are listed there.

I hope this information helps.

Noho ora mai

Thank you all for your posts of suggestions for help.
I am In the U.S, and I wish I was back home to search more, but unfortunately I'm not. When I was home, I spent maybe 5 years searching through the land courts for my grandmothers whakapapa, just to find out who my tupuna are, and to pass the legacy on to my children.
I really want to know who the cousins are and extended whanau, the living, so I can make connections and link them up as a whole.
tnx
Jane

Ten Koe Jane,when I looked at your research, I see you already have 2 sides to our whakapapa on the Patena- Mariu line, and possibly more than most of your local whanau,?I have corrected your greatgrandmothers'name Maata Wherowhero not Martha,how come? until me, I was the only one with that name in our whanau, I am also mindfull of the resources the LatterDay Saints have compiled on Whakapapa which ensures access is
easy,You have done a great job. Love U Aunty Merle.

thank you Aunty Merle for all the information you have relayed to me. So precious!!
I have been researching my whakapapa for at least 20 yrs now, and when in N.Z I lived at the Maori land courts, gathering and gleaning information, sorting,and with prayer...finding a place for all the individuals in the Whanau. With all this information I was able to submit the work into the LDS.org. Seeing as how I am Latter-day -Saint.
To me, Whakapapa is more than just lineage and Whanau but a saving work for our deceased loved ones. I am honored and priviliged to work with my ancestors.
