RIHARI / RYDER Whanau
I am of [b]Nga Puhi[/b] descent and have heard stories of Rihari's living in [b]Te Tii[/b] but am unsure. My father and his twin brother were born in [b]TAUMARUNUI[/b] and adopted by the [i]Smith[/i]'s and I no longer have a relationship with my father. I have absolutely no other information about my dad's biological family.
If anyone thinks they may know someone or something, please let me know.[/quote]
I belong to the Rihari whanau. Would need your father's and/or your fathers twin names. Your grandmother Ryder is on your fathers side or?

I have recently gotten in touch with my Dad and I believe he is your first cousin? My Grandfather actually married Emma Ryder (who I was unsure whether was my Grandmother or not) but my Dad was actually born from Vicky Davies (Ruatara)
I know longer need this post in fact, [b]DOES ANYONE KNOW HOW I DELETE MY THREAD?[/b] I've only managed to delete [i]my[/i] posts in this thread.
