Kia ora kelzinaotearoa,

Go to http://www.familysearch.org and choose the search button. In surname put moananui without the te (as then you will get everyone whose surnames start with te!) and select New Zealand as the country, you will find a few Te Moananui. You will know better than I if they are your whanaunga or not

You can also do a search for the surname Waikato and it will get results.

Just a few things to note when using the familysearch site:
1 Not all records are accurate
2 There can be duplicate records with conflicting information
3 Not all records are linked even though they are the children / parents of others on record
4 There can be different variations of the first names

Good Luck!

Kia ora Whanau, contact the Hauraki maori Trust Board and the Ngati Tamatera Runanga (based in Paeroa). The hauraki claims have huge volumes of research on our tupuna and their doings from the past - they are available from the HMTB Board and the Ngati tamatera Runanga. Meha Te Moananui was recently quoted by Hauraki whaanui for his petition in the 1800's about the foreshore and seabed belonging to hapu and not the crown. I have a whanau member whom you should contact Pitau Mahuta Williams of the Ngati Tawhaki and Te Matewaru hapu of Ngati Tamatera - as I understand it two principal hapu of the cheif Te Moananui of the Hauraki (Marutuahu) people. Another source is the MLC database at the university of Auckland, use Maoananui in the all search feild and this will give you Hauraki Minute book references to any papatipuna korero from your ancestor with respect to take whenua o Te Moananui. Be prepared for the journey it is an awesome one if you are searching for your whakapapa for the right reasons.

Mauri ora

Kia Ora,

My names Sarah Te Teira, I'm Ngati Tamatera and have some information on Te Moananuui that might be of interest to you. We had a reunion in 2000 where we were given our whakapapa which included the Te Moananui whanau. Its mostly about Te Teira Whanau but there is some info on Te Moananui as well. I'll check it again tonight for you but if you want a copy of this you can email me if you like with your address etc and I will be happy to send it up to you.

If you contact anyone at Ngahutoitoi Marae in Paeroa they should be able to help you as well.

Good Luck!!

Moana you may be interested to read my posting thread which asks about this whanau also (Moananui/TeMoananui) on this site. We are from the same line (William Moore). I have been slowly gathering information on this whanau. Wikitoria is buried in the tomo near Manaia marae. I would gladly share what I know with you about William and his family from Whananaki

Kia ora whanau, my great grandmother was Kawhena Te Moananui who married George Brott, from Kaitaia, one of their daughters Matire (Matilda, Tilly) was my grandmother who married Tame Petimana (Pitman) from Takahiwai,but they lived at Tamaterau, across the harbour, they had 18 children. Two of them are still here today, George 100 years old & William 89 years old both live in Whangarei Sadly their younger brother Thomas passed away yesterday in Rotorua aged 76. I know the Moore whanau who have lived at Whananaki, I have recently met a cousin (Judy) from the Williams whanau her mother Agnes was a sister of my grandmother. Any more information would be greatly appreciated. Perhaps it is time for us to have a whanau hui??

No relation to the chief Te Moananui who built the gunfighter pa at Whakamarama in the Western Bay of Plenty in the 1860s? (where Tawhitinui Marae is located)

Kia Ora whanau,
I have just moved back to Aotearoa to research my family tree for my son, though it seems more like a hedge at the moment. He comes down through Hohipera Sophie Te Moananui and Timiuha Te Karu. From what I know, the whanau is from Ngahutoitoi Marae. I am having a bit of difficulty finding info, so if anyone can steer me in the right direction, I would be grateful. They lived in the Paeroa, Hikutaia area
