SMITH whanau: From Dargaville area

I am helping a friend find his whakapapa. His mother is a Smith born in Te Koporu near Dargaville. Her parents were James Raymond Smith (born 16/10/1901 died 1944 in Te Kopuru) and Elsie West. James Smith was the son of Abraham Smith and Eleanor Campbell. Abraham was also known as Aperahama or Pera and was a Captain on the riverboats. Like many of us the family history has been lost and he is trying to find it again for his Mum. If anyone could help it would be appreciated so that I can pass the information on to him. As he doesn't live in New Zealand it is very hard for him to search.
Sandy

Kia ora Sandy,

If you go to http://www.whitepages.co.nz and put smith in tha name, Te Kopuru in the location and Northland in the region, you will get 5 Smiths. Maybe you could contact them.

Let us know how you get on

Nau te raurau,

Kia ora Sandy,

Is this the same James Smith married into the Nikora whanau?

If so please email me hinga2@optusnet.com.au. My brother is married to Smiths from up north. We are currently pulling that whakapapa together.
