Kia ora my cousins and myself are trying to find out what our grandmothers maiden name is. Our grandmothers name is Hohipera Waaka she married our grandfather/Tukotahi Moetu Waaka they both lived in Hamilton and our Marae is Te Papa O Rotu in Whatawhata. Our Great grandmother is Te Ata Te Wao and then she married James Matthers . Our grandmother HOHIPERA is TE ATAs daughter from her first union. We are lead to believe that our nanny might be a Waikato from the Tainui area so if there is anyone who can help we would appreciate it very much. Kia ora
