Whakapapa Club, Maori Genealogy Site

Journal by ngairedith

The WHAKAPAPA CLUB, the main Maori Genealogy Site on the net, has been updated and they have a new look and address

The Whakapapa Club is a child of maori.org.nz. Born in 2000, the Whakapapa Club grew of age in 2018, moving out of home and into the current residence. Over the years the Whakapapa Club has gathered a lot of information, making the childhood residence too confusing to navigate, hence the reason to move. The information to help people with understanding whakapapa has been placed prominently in the front instead of being buried in a back room. The collections, which at this date hold over 20,000 records, have now been reconfigured, making it a lot easier for people to find their way around

The Whakapapa club does not provide a research service, instead, it is a place to do the research ..
Whakapapa Search on Google & FamilySearch
To get good whakapapa search results from Google you need to know how to do an advanced search otherwise you will get a lot of results that are not related to what you are looking for. At their link Google Advanced search they make it easy for you

We have designed a whakapapa search form that will create the advanced search for you for Google as well as a search for the FamilySearch site as their results do not show up in Google.
