Kia ora Rachael, I am researching the same line of Whakapapa. To date I have had no success tracing beyond my great grandfather Petera Ratahi. Will keep you informed as I progress through. There seems to be some conjecture when it comes to William Donaldson and how he fits into the picture.

Kia Ora Rewi. I have had some success in researching my whakapapa & I will in turn try to find the link with yourself through Petera. I have found that I am a direct descendant of Toroa..Mataatua waka. I will up load this info to you as soon as I can.
Thank you for your reply.

Your great grandfather Petera is my grandfathers brother.
This is their line. Hoani was the eldest brother but he died young. Then there was Awanui&#257;rangi,Parekau,Tarahotu,Mihaka,Petera,Te Hura,WhiuWhiu and sister Parehuia. Mihaka is my grandfather. Your great great grandfather was Te Ratahi Parakau & your great great grandmother was Rooha Petera. Petera & his siblings took on their father's first name as their surname hence; Petera Ratahi. Your great great great grandparents were; Parakau & WhiuWhiu. Parakau had two Brothers; Ngarangikaituku (Ropi) & Te Wiremu. Their parents were Kiore & Wharawhara. Kiore & Wharawhara had 2 children; Te Haumarangai who married Moimoi & Mahiti who married Hinemareikura. Now Kiore is the 5th youngest child of Taiwhakaea2 & Toanatini. A Poupou of our ancestor Kiore is on the new Mataatua Marae. Through him we are direct descendants of the chief Toroa,commander & leader of the Mataatua Waka.
