I am looking for my maternal grandmother's natural parents' ancestry. My grandmother was Meikura Kumeroa Potaka born 1901. She was whangai of Rora and Utiku Potaka. Her natural parents were Kumeroa Te Tana and Ngaako Tunango. I would appreciate any information.

My grandmother's natural parents were from Parikino marae (up the Wanganui river).
