Lewis whakapapa

Tracing my whakapapa has been a hard the more I think I found not even.
Now what I have found on these two people are hear say, Maata Te tuku Te Waharoa one way of spelling last name, the other way Whararoa????? I think she was born in Otorohanga Waikato as I had only found out theres family land again hear say. Next person Tawi Lewis wife Tapapa Tahuri Tinimene I think this is how it is spelled.Getting the right spelling is not easy. If anyone can help with the spelling or help in anyway please contact me, I do have some info to compare with.


I did a post yesterday but spelling of Maata last names was wrong. More info for Maata , Maata Te tuku Waharoa born 06 Feb 1904 in Otorohanga Waikato, died 1952 Te Reinga , married Manapouri Lewis 1923.I might know this info on Maata but I cant find any records on her or last name. I need to have my info correct before adding to tree. Is it Maata last is Te tuku or Te Waharoa or both help put me on right track thank you.

Lewis tracing.

I have been on this research for a long time and now I have made some progress in my search for Maata Te Tuku
but still need confirmation as finding records for her is hard. I know Maata Te tuku married Manapouri Lewis of Wairoa plus hear say that Maata Te Tuku is from Otorohanga Waikato, New Zealand and she has land there. Unsure as I cant find records on her name Maata Te tuku or Wharoa I think that's the spelling.
Is there anyone who knows or research her or seen a record and can put me on the site.
