Kia ora whanau,
I am looking for my grandmother's maiden name. She was married to Wati Teira from Whirinaki Hokianga. Since all my aunts and ucles have 'passed on' I thought I would post this and see what happens.

do you have her death, marriage or birth cert??

She died in 1953. Her name was Mereana.

if you had the above certs, there would be a maiden name on them, even parents names etc.

I don't have any of the certificates - not knowing her maiden name makes it almost impossible to get her birth certificate. As for the others I will try and access BDM's in NZ. Thanks anyway.
