Kia ora Herena,

Does Martha Rawhiti ring a bell? Her parents were Paddy and Elaine Rawhiti. If so drop me a line and I'll send your details to my brother who has married in to the whanau.

Also, don't forget to check up on www.oldfriends.co.nz and www.familysearch.org. You could even try www.justice.govt.nz and search through the Maori Land Court if you haven't already.

All the best in your continued search.
