Kia Ora everyone,

I was hoping someone out there may be able to help me locate some of the Smith whanau who are from Kaihu in the Kaipara please. I am trying to find any descendants of a Henry Smith who was born in 1892 at Maropiu, up from Kaihu. His mother was Lizzie Smith and I think his dad was Ben? Henry Smith had about six children and some are still alive up north somewhere - I don't want to post up any names of those who may be still alive, but his children would be around in their 70's.

I am trying to see if my mums whanau is linked with this Henry Smith of Kaihu as we have a Henry Smith in our whakapapa but he lived a little bit earlier than this Henry Smith of Kaihu.

Hope someone is able to help.

Thank you in advance
