RAKETE Tarukore and PONAHIA Tepaea
My birth certificate shows I am Ngati Tautahi. I am looking for the family connection between my grandparents Piripi Rakete Tarukore and Marara Koruhunga and my great grandparents on my father's side who were Rakete Tarukore and Tepaea Ponahia. My great grandparents on my grandmother's side were Kawa Koruhunga and his wife Mereana. My birth town is Te Iringa. The only date I have is from the marriage certificate of my grandparents Piripi and Marara who were married 18 November 1911 at Te Huehue Meeting House. Piripi's birth place is Te Huehue and Marara's is Kaikohe. I would sincerely appreciate any help I can get in my quest - Who am I, where am I from, and who do I belong to? Arohanui Irene
