Tena koe jah,

If you make sure you are in the Whakapapa Club then click on full search and search for Prei you will find quite a few records. Some will not be relavent, but some may help.

You could also go to www.familysearch.org and put Peir in the surname, setting the country to New Zealand and have a look around there also.

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

He Peri toku kuia, No Te Teko ia. Ko Hahuru te marae, kei Onepu, i Kawerau. Ko Te Ohuka Peri tona ingoa. Ko Ngatiawa tona iwi, Ko Mataatua te waka, Tihei Mauri ora.

Kia ora Jah,
My cousin's name is Joe Peri who is still currently living in Waima as far as I know. His father was Sonny Peri, and his great grandfather's name was Joe Peri also. The Great Grandfather is a brother of my Grandfather. If my memory serves me right Joe (my Cousin) lives on the main raod to Opononi in Waima. His wife is also a JP of the area. You may want to contact them as they could probably help you out. Godd luck
