Kia ora Shirley_1,

Welcome!

I am sure you will find this a very supportive site as everyone tries to help and encourage people who are looking for their whanau and information on their whanau.

Just wondering if you could clarify for us if you are talking about Te Kooti Arikirangi Te Turuki the founder of the Ringatu Chruch?

Good Luck!

Nau te raurau,
Naku te raurau,

Kia ora ano Shirley_1

I have had a look at http://www.familysearch.org and there are quite a few Turuki, Kooti and Ihakara whanau, so if you pop over there you would probably relate to the names better than I! When you search for a name there, don't put in the Te as you will then get a huge result with all names starting with Te. Also, be aware that not all the information in there is accurate, my father and his siblings are listed there twice - one lot of records have them being born in 1900's and one lot of records have them being born in the 1800's - same day and month just different centuries. But it is a good place to start and worth the visit as there can be some pounamu found in there.

Good Luck and let us know how you get on

HI
The book HOROUTA has heaps of Whakapapa in it ..including Te Kooti's. My Gt Gt grandfather was his half brother. Also another good one is "The Upraised Hand"(I think that is the name...maybe Upraised Palm)...It is about Te Kooti.
