RIPIKOI, Rangihuata Ngakai
Searching for any information on the Ripikoi whanau, in particular Rangihuata Ngakai who married Reti Hoani. Wanting to find out where the Ripikoi whanau come from. Are they from the Thames area?
Ranighuata & Reti Hoani had two sons Hamiora and Ngakai Peter. Any help would be much appreciated.
