POINTON (nee NATHAN) Karen Frances: Help with my whakapapa

Kia ora!
Nga mahana mihi kia koutou.

I am a descendant of the Nathan/Netana/Heta/Arama/Rako whanau (Ngapuhi iwi, Te Uriroroi/Te Mahurehure hapu) and am researching whanau lineage to assist with my hitori whakapapa. My tipuna is Eruera Wiremu Nathan who married Koke Tatiana Heta. My ancestors branches out to Witeria Netana, Netana Netana, Ripa (?) ... If you can assist me with information in connection with the above names, I'd appreciate your help. Please email me
