Thanks Kina For your Help
Kuku/Karena is the line you need to be on not any other.
Nanas homestead is at Te Ngaere Marae thats where
shes from like i said I lived there so I know what I'm talking about.
Uncle jim still lives in the ole homestead cos my piece of land is rite behind it.
Dad also had another brother (Half) as you like to put it,and he goes under kingi.
if you had of listened to me way back you would'nt be writing in asking for help like i said walk the talk don't let the fingers do the walking.
cos at the end of the day your gonna have to put faces to the names of whanau you've never met.
Thats why dad told me everything to do with his whanau etc....when i was young i lived up in mangamuka so if your going to ignore the help i'm trying to give you then gud luk cos your already getting the whakapapa wrong.
sorry to those that have to read this but some people delve into there whakapapa with hate inside them. I say fix yourself first before you start on the next project.
If that last reply was aimed at me i only told that young lady what was in the Maori land records. I have never in over 40 years told any person their whakapapa.But i dont know if you have suffered the heart ache of brother marrying sister and having children because no one would tell them who they are.If in some way i can help our young ones avoid the same heartache i will carry on helping them and sleep will.If i had been told things when i was young maybe my life would have been better, But then again that baggage belongs to me not my mokopuna.May peace look on your whanau.
Don't worry Kina. Just my sister blowing off steam. She isn't reading the site properly. I am searching the Cook/Karena side of the Whanau.
Searching both parents of dad. Just filling in the gaps. Just ignore her. Can't call her right now she's on dial up.
READ THE JOLLY BLOG FIRST LEA. GRANDMOTHER AND GRANDFATHER I,M LOOKING FOR.idiot
The first posting is an old one. Kina was good enough to help and I thank him a great deal. You were informed that the residents at Te Ngae do not know you and or dads name/family, having spoken to the grand-daughter of the gentleman currently living there (75 years). You were told that on the phone to which your answer was the same one posted. Those links have been exhuasted. My next endeavour took me to Waikumete Cemetry (your suggestion), and am currently waiting on a reply from them (re:grandfather family name). Your info is late in coming (Kina supplied the links to this family). You were already told this over the phone. And don't know why you keep posting repeated phone conversations?????????
Please stop repeating yourself and stay off this blog.
Family info I already have. Adrian to email me. Waikumete Cemetry to email. As told to you by phone.

Your fathers side. and you missed a coupkle of names your sister ngaere and lea margaret you's are not the only ones in that family and they both are blood to your dad dick or richard if you want to know details of this ask my mother ginny your aunty she'll put you str8 on who's your family and whatnot stop picking and choosing who's who in your brood as you are all one blood whether you'd like to admit it or not thats just a keha view you've taken on stop it cuzz
