I have gone back to about 1720, but need some details confirmed correct or otherwise and a lot of gaps filled in and of course to talk to you all who are my whanau.

Kia ora ... Lillian

Kia ora kotiro,

Can you confirm that Te Riwhi and Te Rata are whanau names (surnames) or first names so members may be able to awhi you a bit more.

No, TIPENE is the surname and Te Riwhi & Te Rata are the first names - that's why I capitalised the surname, because I thought it was standard practice. Te Riwhi was my grandfather and his father was Te Rata.

Kia ora ano kotiro,

I asked for clarification as I know people with all those names as surnames! And yes, you are right, it is standard practice, but it is a new practice here at the moment and sometimes I have spent a few hours searching for surnames that were actually first names.

If you go to http://www.familysearch.org and put Te Rata in the first name, Tipene in the surname and set the country to New Zealand the results will give you listings for both Te Rata Tipene and Te Riwhi Tipene as well as variations of those names. These records may be able to help you, but be aware that the records at this site are not always correct; names spelt wrong, dates out by a century but it is a good place to start.

As you already have names, using the familysearch site you can confirm things. However, if say for example one of the records has a different parent than the one that you have, do not necessarily take the familysearch record as being correct, make a note of the other name then see if you can confirm from another source either the name you have or the name that familysearch has. Also be aware that a different name for a parent could indicate that the other person has more than one marriage and that could be where the other name comes in.

Use the familysearch site to confirm things that you have, do not use it as the definitive record.

Good luck!

Thanks, I have already been through that site, not much there. The LDS site had a little on my grandfather (although incorrect some parts - and he was never a Mormon) but I just need much older parts of my whakapapa verified (right or wrong). I shall sit, wait and hope someone out there can share that knowledge with me.

tena korua Kotiro mea Witewhiu
Kei te tika me haere tonu kia Joe.
Engari e hara kei a ia anoo nga hekenga mo te whanau o Te Rata anake. Kei konaa nga uri o Te Ropere kei te noho mai i Motatau i aia tonu nei. Na ratou enei koorero:
Ko Mataroria te tupuna. ko Tipene tona uri.
E ai ki nga koorero, ka moe a Tipene, ka puta ko Hemi.
Ka moe a Hemi ka puta ko Te Rata, tae noa atu ki tana potiki ko Te Ropere.
Ka moe a Te Rata kia Mihiwira ka puta ko Te Riiwhi tau tupuna e whai haere nei e koe, e kotiro.
Kia ora korua
Romi

Does anyone have a photo of my grandfather's father Te Rata Tipene. I already have one of Mihiwira (Te Rata's wife). Appreciate all your help in advance.
