It is a challenge to trace through your ancestors though there are things that you are going to need to be able to pull it of. Though, there are times when you would wish that you just didn't know. Most of them when you learn that you are in this bloodline of not so noble people, and worse, even a part of those who are considered as the lowly people during those times. But it is all about changing how things shape up now.
Kia ora Ngamotu34. My name is phyllis and i'm a new member to this club. I just want to add a wee bit to your story picture. I have a note in my papers saying "Te Arai & Jack fell in the hole when they were digging Paeroa's grave" (This was at Huarau, Otaua/Waiuku). My note also says that Te Arai was Paeroa's cousin. On a hunt to Auck. this January past looking for "Tawha" connection to me, I was directed to Eru Thompson who lives in south auckland. He has a brother in Te Awamutu way who does the whakapapa and whom I will meet to get info. I may need. Eru will take me to meet with him when I'm ready. if you don't already know eru thompson you can find his profile in google. i'm interested in your Tawha side because one of my tipuna was also known as Te Tawha (Pokaiaka was his other name.) Nice talking to you.
Kia ora koutou, made me smile to see you asking about your Kuia, Parehaha Haeata. I see your posts are quite old now, so you probably already have learnt it, because it is a well known whakapapa back in Ngati Mahanga. Even I know off the top of my head that Parehaha was the daughter of Pou Haeata and in turn Pou Haeata was the son of Tuheitia Haeata. And in turn Tuheitia was the son of Haeata Mahanga Pikia. The genealogist Ron Pai has done a lot of research into that lineage.
