Kia Ora
I am seeking whakapapa for My Husbands Whanau. Their Great grandfather was Penetana Tarakawhara AKA Penetana Pewhairangi AKA Penetana Kawhara AKA Te Otene Whati. Although we previously thought they were from the Mahia region I now believe he was of Ngati Rangiteaorere Orgins, possibly even Ngati Pikaio. I found him on an electorial roll in Owhata, Rotorua in 1908. If anyone has information on this line I would be very greatful.
His brother (Possibly 1/2 brother ) was Toko Rihara.

If anyone out there can help I would love to hear from you
Thanks Heaps
