JOHNSON: Te Hinganui o Waikato Robert Johnson
Tena tatou e aku nui e aku rahi, he mihi maioha tenei ki kautau i rarau i matakitaki mai ki tenei wharangi whakapapa!
Namaste whanau, my name is Teneka McLeod my father is Hiwawa Gregory Johnson better known as 'POP' I'm currently researching whakapapa on my fathers side and I do not know my grandfather (name stated in the title of this thread) I have learned of some of my whakapapa but nothing of my koro. I'm hoping that someone will have some korero about my koro or his parents or grandparents etc....
Any information will be helpful, nga mihi ki koutou ano
Make sure you are at the [url= http://whakapapa.maori.org.nz]Whakapapa Club[/url] and put johnson in the search box in the very top right hand corner.
You will find a few whanau in the results so have a look there and see if that will help you.
Next go to the Research Archives at the Whakapapa Club and again put the surename in the search box and check out those results.
Lastly go to the eMail directories at the Whakapapa Club - there are a few results there and those people may be whanau or else be able to help you on your search.
Nau te raurau,
Naku te raurau,
Ka ora ai nga tangata!
Together we will get there!
Kia ora. Robert Hinganganui (Te Ihi) Johnson sounds familiar to me around Takahiwai, Ruakaka, Whangarei area. Some of this line moved to around Fielding way, others around Taumarunui. If this sounds like your line you can contact me on firstname.lastname@example.org if you wish. I'll be able to assist you with your enquiries. Best wishes with your search.
Kia ora - I was also going to mention Takahiwai as a possible link to research, my GG Aunty Te Koha Edwards married a Johnson from Takahiwai.....early 1900's I believe. I too haven't been able to connect him to anyone specific but another thing to keep in mind & I found with mine that at different times they would switch between using "Johnson" and "Honetana"
Edwards "Teri family", Rewi, Tawhai, Ruka, Ngapine, Johansen. Poroti, Waima, Takahiwai, Northland. Te Uri Roroi, Te Parawhau.
Kia ora ano Anihana/Teneka. Now I have a bit better idea of how you fit in. Tena koe e te whanaunga. We are related along the line through the Honetana whakapapa. I remember Aunty Koha quite well, and you might know that Aunty Mary Wassel (nee Honetana) sadly passed away last year after a lingering illness.
We should perhaps talk some more and I can think more on what it is that you are looking for clarification on. You can contact me on email@example.com directly and we can talk in more detail about whanau etc.. Te Rangikotama
