PEREKI, Bert

Tena koutou katoa,

I am searching for further information about my maternal grandfather, Bert PEREKI. This is what I know:

DOB: 25.12.1901
Parents: Moses and Mere PEREKI
Area: Manutuke
Wife: Kahutaniko (Mary) Clark (Karaka) - Ngati Tipa
Children: Diana, Bert, Tom, Diana, Sally and Taihoa
Died: 1970 (buried at Mangere Maori Cemetery)

My grandfather was from the time that meant that children were seen and not heard and as he had children late in his life (he was 46 when my mother, Diana (the 2nd) was born), he did not volunteer any information about his life. I have searched for his history on and off for 20 years and it feels right to search again.

Any information will be appreciated.

Many thanks

Mere Henry
