Kia Ora and Te Koe, I am researching my Whakapapa, which I've been doing for a couple of years now and I'm searching for my Great Grandfather : Robert Henry Strongman snr who was married to :Maryann Margaret Strongman ( Nee:Dell Gorrie.or Gorry)from KeriKeri.B.O.I's.
Now Robert Henry Strongman's Father was: Davis Strongman who was married to : Matilda Strongman ( Nee: Edmonds )from Kaikohe, her parents were : Erana & Arthur Edmonds from Kaikohe . Now as far I know Erana's parents were from : Kaikohe .So that makes me a Ngati Hine/ Ngaphuhi Descendant.
