I need some Help!!!!
I'm trying to trace the whakapapa of my GGGrandfather.
He is from Mahia, but where exactly I'm not sure if you can help please contact me.
His name was Nepia Rongo. His parents were Hirini Rongo and Erana Marara.

Kia ora. My G Grandfathers name is Taurima Rongo. I'm not sure if he is a brother to either Nepia Rongo or Hirini Rongo. I do have the papers, but at the moment Im in Aussie. If you are in NZ, try and get to Gisborne Maori Affairs. They have them all registered.Because there is 10 of them. If you have any luck give us a bell. I was also able to trace 1 of my great grandfathers sister whose siblings live in Gisborne.I'm waiting on info from them hoping it is their whakapapa.
