Kia Ora koutou, Im trying to find my birthfather and have limited details. His names are possibly Winston, Wilson or William and he would have been aged approximately 26 when I was born on the 1st of May 1971. He is approximately 5'7" and he was a bouncer in a Christchurch bar in 1970-71 and possibly a labourer. He is apparently one of approximately six siblings. At the time he was of medium build had black wavy hair and brown eyes. My birthmothers name was Robyn Yvette Twaddle and she worked in a Christchurch Sports Factory at about the same time. She was from Albany in Australia and is extremely hostile and unhelpful towards me. He may possibly have been married at the time also. IT IS NOT MY INTENTION to possibly bring emotional upheaveal or distress to this man and his current whanau. But it is my intention to be able to tell my children where they are from and their place in Maoridom.
