Kia ora koutou
My kuia is Mary Green (nee Lewis)
My koroua was Jack Green
They are my father's parents
They are from Wairoa, Te Reinga has been mentioned to me.
I have met my grandmother once and unfortunately never got to meet my grandfather.
I am trying to track down my father's pepeha and would like any help. I have tried ringing a grand uncle in Gisborne but to no avail.

kia ora, Amelia,
We are looking for Lewis relatives from the east coast. Some years ago a kaumatua came looking for his cousin Harold Frances Lewis in Lower Hutt but Harold had already passed. the whanau were unaware that they were Maori,so we are trying to trace to Lewis whanau on the Coast. it doesn't answer your query but if you have any info we would be grateful.
Kia Ora, I am a Green of Te Kuiti. Call Lynn Green at the Mainapoto Maori Pact Trust in Te Kuiti and she will be able to help you. Wati Green was Lynn's Mother and she was from Otorohanga, Wati's Mother Tairingiringi was from the East Coast, Wati's Dad Kakiwhati was from Otorohanga. Tairingiringi pineing for her home took 3 of their children back to the East Coast and Left the 3 Eldest with her Husband Kakiwhati.
Hope this helps you.
