Are you related to kaumatua Chris Marino currently living in Sydney but originally from Ngapuna in Rotorua?

He is a very wise man indeed! I might be able to connect you to him to help you.

Hi and thanks for your reply. I am not sure if I am related but maybe. It is like trying to put a huge jigsaw together with missing peices but any help would be fantastic. 🙂 and I could do with a wise man's direction.

Tena koe LouLips

My name is Christine Powell and I am the share administrator for Maori Investments Limited.  I am searching Wiripene/Wiripine = Ihaka Marino for a succession and am in contact with Aperahama Meihana's extended family.  Could you please contact me on christine@maoriinvestments.co.nz to see if we have any whakapapa information that we can share?  I would be most interested to talk with you.
