This is my Nannies name, i'm a moko from her 2nd marriage to Peri Haami Waaka (Ngawaka). I'm searching for any information on her parentage. I know her Dad's name was Henry Pukeroa (Great Grandfather) and her Mum's name was Ramari (Greatgrand Mother). Also she was from Rotorua - Tuwharetoa, I would greatly appreciate anything that would help me piece my whakapapa together. My Nanny is buried up in Ahipara, her 1st husband was Herewini Hemi and had since passed away when she and my Koro met in Rotorua and subsequently married in Ahipara.

Tena koe WhisperNZ,

If you make sure you are in the Whakapapa Club then search for Pukeroa by putting the name in the box at the top right hand of the page, you will get a result in the lists. Follow the instructions in that link and you will find some of your whanau.

Note: Not asll information at that site is accurate, but it is a great place to start.

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

I am a Moko of Stanley James who was a son of Herewini Hemi & Ripeka Pukeroa, from what ive heard, someone told me Ripeka was an Arano (Allen) from Ahipara, i didnt think anything of it except for the fact that she was buried in front of them, my grandfather is next to her, is that true? was Ramari the Allen, cause all my Aunties reckon the Pukeroa's are from down there, im not dissing u, jus need answers help

Kia ora Whisper
Like you I am tracing my tupuna's to. My great great grandfathers name is Henare Pukeroa as I am finding out and his wife is Ramari Davidson or Blake. Is this the same people? She passed away 1947. Is there any connection?
Just wondering

Kia ora

Hi there is Ripeka Tairi Pukeroa the same relation to Aroha and Apihaka Pukeroa of Ahipara. My father is Bowman Huru who use to go to school with his cousins who are the Pukeroa's at Waikeri School in the gumfields of Ahipara. I have a copy of the Culture Group they were in when they had won 1st prize between the years 1888-1988.

I'm sorry everybody for not replying sooner... I was working out of the Manukau Library... I have since aquired my own machine and plan on getting back to you all...
For Te Kuta; Yes we are bones... I loved my Uncle Stan your Koro... Dereck/Lynton is my brother.. Who are your parents... I will give you my email address if you want...
For Joanna; I'm sorry, I don't have that much information yet. I ran into a brick wall... At a time I was running a little too fast, and it sat me on my arse... I would love to see that picture you have though...
Again, my deepest apologies to you all...

Kia ora,
If you can establish the connection then maybe the tupuna was via traditional Te Rawara and Aupouri descent lines through ancestors from Ruanui and down to:
Matua koro=Pukeroa
Maraea Pukeroa= Captain Cunningham

Pi.

E Ho Whanau *hahaha*
I'm reading everyones postings and can see we're all related here.
Yes, we all know the Pukeroa whanau from Waiker1 as Joanna so kindly put it and yes Joanna i am related to your dad Bowman. My dad's mum is a Pukeroa, her name was Waikohu Ani Pukeroa. She married Hori Kawhina Pura. They had seven children and the children took the fathers first name as their last, what a small world. Joanna i have your whakapapa too as you as so closely related to me. My mothers mother and your dads mother are sisters *hahaha* You know Joanna, my dad is named after your great grand father Te Tatau Hare Huru.
WhisperNZ go to the Te Rarawa website and post on their thread those whanau would give you all the info you want or do as i do and print all the messages out that way you can sort it all out......Kia Ora all *s*
