EDWARDS: from Ahipara
I thought I was my father's eldest child, but someone told me that I have an older half brother. My father's name was Ray Edwards ("Dummy") now deceased, born in 1931. Because I am very much in to whakapapa and family, I would dearly like to meet this person. I am from a family of 6 (4 girls and 2 boys).

Kia Ora Kotiro
I know how you feel I to thought that I was the eldest child of my
fathers but unfortunately my father had two other children to which me and my siblings didnt know. We also had 4 girls and 2 boys.
so keep on looking for your brother because like me with persistance
when you finally find him you will feel complete and that feeling is
so wonderful .
Kia kaha, kia manawa nui
Kia ora korua mo nga kupu awhina.
I did look up the Te Rarawa site and posted the message of not only the above, but that I was also wishing to discover my father's side as I was brought up by my maternal grandparents since I was a baby (now 45).
I did get a reply from someone pointing me in the direction of my father's sister's son (my cousin) - so will let you know the outcome of that a.s.a.p.
