Lists of names online?

Tena koutou,

One of the questions raised during the testing phase of the Whakapapa Club was the possibility of putting lists of names online, for example, school rolls.

At the time this was raised, we were focused on getting the Whakapapa Club working and therefore this issue was not addressed at that time.

If you would like this facility to be added to the Papa Panui, post a note here, stating what kind of information you would be able to share. This will allow us to be able to set up the categories / sub categories.

The lists will be fully searchable and set up simlar to our links section.

As always, kei a koutou te mana! If there is enough tautoko for this, it will be done.

Heoi ano,
maori.org.nz Team

Kia ora maori.org.nz,

That is a great idea and I remember it was brought up, by y2ranga I think.

It is hard to find lists for Maori - most of the genealogy sites have things for pakeha, like passenger lists, school rolls (not the native school rolls) electoral rolls (but not the Maori electoral rolls) so by having that here for us would be a great help

I have old schools photos with the names on, so I could add that under school rolls.

Also, I have a copy of the 1878 Maori census which lists the Iwi, Hapu and place. It is quite an interesting read as some of the places are no longer around, but it may help people in looking for hapu information. If we go ahead with this, I can add this, but it would take a while as the list is 15 pages long and the font size is about a 6.

There are also some sites on the net that have lists for Maori. Could we copy those over to here, with a reference to where we got it from, as that would make searching a lot easier if it is in one place.

The lists that I am thinking about are burial records, ministers, people who have records in the Taumata Rau series and people who are listed in books.

Kia ora ano,

I pulled out a small book to see what kind of lists that I could get from it for reference, and as well as names of people, I can get places, waka, Iwi and Hapu and battles, so maybe, if this goes ahead, we could include those categories also.

The places are stories of how place names got their names, waka, iwi and hapu would be good as I notice that people are starting to ask about these and batles are always interesting

Some of this information relates to before the 1800's huiabird

Kia ora koutou, I agree poutokomanawa, perhaps we maybe able to add a list of nga ingoa o nga urupa also, as for myself I have found that some of the urupa in my area makes reference to another waahi which binds my tupuna to that area as well and that helps for those who are trying to research whakapapa and whanaungatanga. There is a wealth of resources available now, and the members and others are so willing to help each other, kei te koa taku ngakau i nga mahi o tena ,o tena e tautoko ana i te mano. Kia kaha koutou.

Kia ora koutou

All of the below that has been suggested by Poutokomana, Y2ranga - I totaly agree with, I cannot at this stage think of anything else that needs to be added.

Native school rolls
Old school photos with the names on
Maori electoral rolls
Census records of Waka, Iwi, Hapu, Wahi
Burial records
Nga ingoa o nga urupa
Records in the Taumata Rau series
Well known, famous Maori - (Bibliograhies)
Tribal websites
Places and how they got their name
The Maori Wars

If the information was set up as like the Research for names tab, then it would be help immensley for whanau seeking connections, and information.

We already have the tab for links, but as you suggest maori.org.nz catergories and sub categories will be excellent.

Depending on which catergories will be chosen, some will be readily availble information,to read, some may be have links to be directed to.

This is awesome

Kia ora koutou

Tena koutou,

The Boss (maori.org.nz) got me to have a look at setting this up, in case there were enough people willing to share lists of inforamation to go in.

Naturally we looked at our own resources first and were amazed to find that we have over 4000 names in our various databases! This does not include our members' personal details, which we will not pull to add into the lists.

If you want your whanau names and surnames available in the lists, add a listing in the Email directores. In the Ingoa Whakamutunga Surname part, you could add all of your whanau names, for example grandmother's maiden name, mother's maiden name. If you are already listed in the Email directory, you can edit your records to include these names.

We then contacted some of the sites that are in our links section for permission to copy their lists. As a result of this, we now have over 6000 records which will be fully searchable.

Poutokomanawa, I have sent you a pm with the test URL so you can add your lists before this goes live if you so wish.

If anyone else has lists that they wish to share, post a note here.

Tena koutou,

We now have added lists of names, holding over 7000 records, to help people with whakapapa.

The lists can be accessed from the Papa Panui pages by clicking on lists in the menu under the login boxes.

These lists are fully searchable, just put in a name and see what you can find.

Enjoy
