TAUTARI, Tuwahine, Pari, Hemi: (Waiomio, Northland)
Kia ora Pearlau,
My grandmother's name was Tuwahine Tautari and married to Te Riwhi Tipene. Her father was Pari Tautari, mother Mate Hoterene. I was brought up by them both since about 6 months of age (now 45) although they died when I was 11 and 14 respectively and I still miss them very much (34 years on). They were both my mother's parents.
Kia ora Kotiro, its your relly here from Motatau, Im Huru Tipene's youngest daughter Phyllis. You may know that my sister Rosie married Thomas Tautari (known as Ratt to most people) from Waiomio and i know Thomas and your mum were first cousins (Thomas's dad was Piri Tautari). He may know more about your Tautari side. If you want more info e-mail me on email@example.com and i will give you over Rosie and Ratt's details. Mauri Ora.
Hi kotiro. I didn't know your grandmother but I remember some of the other Tautari's of Waiomio. I remember walking past old man Piri Tautari's place every day attending Waiomio Primary school. Mum was good friends with Auntie Kuini Ututaonga (nee Tautari).
I just put my whakapapa on the internet which includes what you are looking for. Take a look at http://www.boxallfamily.org/genealogy and use the search option.
I hope this helps...

Any chance of geting those wise opening words from your site posted to this one?
I think what is expressed there is very inspirational for all of us who are searching, I was most impressed.
There is a wealth of information on your site which is a real testimony to many years of hard work a a true taonga for future generations
Those are not my words so I cannot take credit for them. But they aptly reflect my thoughts and feelings of family history research.
I found this story on several other family history web sites and have used it on my web site also.
