Hi, Someone on this thread may be able to assist me also.
Im trying to trace a possible marriage or relationship between a Edward Wilson & Nora Rameka, both likley born 1885c. Edward died 1961 Kaikohe. There could have been a child born from this relationship, Edward was said to be a bit of a ladies man. Rumour had it that 3 women were all pregnant to him at once, I am also going to post re those ladies. I am trying to do the family tree & cant work who had which kids to whom.
hi yes the Rameka family is very big the only Ramekas i know and am related to is the Ramekas from up north around the areas of Motukaraka and up futher by NgaTaki. i have heard from my papa that there is a lot of Ramekas down the line around the Taupo area, but i do not know if they are closely related.
Kia Ora everyone,
I am a descendant of Moengaroa Rameka and Waitai Rata. I am searching for details or whanau from Moengaroa's side of the whanau, she was born in the early 1900s and died from the influenza epidemic, i think her fathers name was Mita Rameka. If anyone any any information on them i would really love to hear from you. The whanau is from Ngati Kuri in the far north.
I am the great-grandson of Whakaaria (Fred) Rameka and Anne Ena Rameka (Died 04 August 1971, 20 October 1989 respectively)
See headstone -> https://goo.gl/tzgdMD
They had four children: Ted, Ena (my grandmother, now deceased), Ella and Anne.
It is my understanding that they were involved, to some extent, with Rātana pā, or Ratana Community.
I am also told they are from Northland, New Zealand.
I am interested in talking with anyone who is a descendant or whanaunga of these people and/or can help with basic Whakapapa information (i.e., Iwi, Hapu, Marae etc).
Other know Rameka relations include:
Any help would be much appreciated.
