Hi there, trying to trace any information on Wainui Manukura / Wainui Hamiora Tumaru / Wainui Hamiora Manukura??

Births, Deaths, and Marriage certificates are all giving different names this is my grandfather and i would appreciate any information at all?? He lived in Ruawai but it says he was born in Tepare and his fathers name was Hamiora Tumaru mother Erina Rokena / Rogan (from the Stanaway line).

Thanks in advance

Kia ora,

You may find that they are one in the same person - [url= http://whakapapa.maori.org.nz/articles.php?cat_id=5]Maori Naming conventions[/url] explains it quite well.

Understanding how the names work will help you to to work out how to trace information 😀

Good Luck!
