Kia ora whanau just updating my post but still looking for an expansion or clarity of what i have. I know the best way to get it is through personal communication, but the opportunity doesnt really come around much when your a full time student with no waka and no whanau connections.

I do hope to someday trace my whakapapa back as far as i can without any hidden names or decietfulness. common guys not everyone uses their whakapapa to be whakahihi or raise thier status. Ive already been told we have connections to certain "important people of mana" but thats not why im searching.

I want to know where im from what the history of my toto is. Anyways thanks for those who have already helped heaps. Was lucky enough to speak to Homai Uerata at the koroneihana but time restrictions meant a conversation cut short. Anyways this is what i have so far.

If anyone has a connection to these four names feel free to leave a message.

If you dont agree with my requesting of this information thats fine just dont give me crap about it, this is my hiahia not a demand.

Kia ora Matiu. You could try calling Crown Forestry Rental Trust research employee in Poneke by the name of Nicola Kiri-Smith. You could email me later at makomihi@hotmail.com later for further details if you wish. Nicola is also from this Uerata line.
