Hi there. My sisters and I have been searching for our Tupuna Harowe Morunga (Could have other variations to the spelling of his name) for some time. We don't have much information about him except that he used to reside at Wharengaere Bay in 1800s (according to the electoral roll). We have searched in some not all urupa where we think he may be buried namely Waima-Okahu, Wharengaere and Omanaia. We are still look in Whirinaki and the like. We have information going further back but we are wanting information or the link descending down from him to me? I don't know if he was married or not, or whether he had children, where he died and where he is buried. If you have any information, please don't hesitate to get in touch. Any information, regardless of how small is better than nothing. I take this opportunity to thank you in advance.

I, for one, have no idea what you are talking about. What country are you talking about? Is "tupuna" a title as Grandfather?

You write in Tribalpages Forum asking members for help but the chance of this happening is not great. At least Robert did answer your message and he tried to help while living on the other side of the world to you. Well done Robert.

Where I found the link needs no explanation. That's obvious by looking at the link. You obviously know about Google.

I think that what you need to take into account is that NZ membership compared to the rest of the world is extremely small and most could not be expected to understand Maori or spend their own time trying to find the meaning of your Maori wording.

Good luck with your research. You will not find your ancestor in the official NZ Govt. Internal Affair Dept. death records under the name you have provided.

Takes a long time. Tribalpages has just had an extended holiday.
