Im am doing my family history and am seeking any information on my KINGI line. The following is the line I believe I come from:

Grandmother: Elaine Josephine Kingi - im not sure who my grandfather is
Great Grandmother: Vera Jane Williams - Great Grandfather: Paku Kingi

I "think" that Paku's parents might have been "Te Kohu Kingi and Oriwia Ngato or Ratana".

ANY information or help would be much appreciated. I have been able to trace back Veras line but haven't had any luck with the Kingi side.

Thanks so much!

I'm interested to know what you found. Te Kohu Kingi and Oriwia Ngato were also my second great grandparents. I've found Oriwia's father listed as Ratana and her brother listed as Heramaia Ngato.
