Kiaora Koutau, Im looking for any information that anyone may have on either of these whanaus. My surname is Patarana and my nan on my Fathers side was a Karauna(Barb).I do not no much sbout my Fathers whanau but am very interested on changing that but it is proving to be a bit of a mission, My Nan and Father were from Opotiki and there are some whanau such as the Gages still living there and down south. My quest to find my roots and more about my whakapapa are still in the motion but have been very limited to do so, so I hope the right reader reads this and has some info that could help me out.
