Over the past several years I have compiled many research journals which relate to the history of the Kaihu Valley, North Ripiro West Coast and South Hokianga in Northland, New Zealand. The period covers the arrival of the first nation people (Maori) in about 1300 AD, to the year 1900. In some cases, this time span overlaps as details of the history require.
I have created this webpage to publish the journals for those who may be interested now, or in the future. I have also included work I have done on local genealogies/whakapapa and military histories. Please feel free to save anything you find useful as you flick through the vast amount of information, and if you have any questions you are welcome to contact me, either by commenting on the site or through the contact details below:
