Bill Smith - Looking for family of....

gidday all, my name is cassy stewart, i live in queensland australia. i am searching for members of my great-grandfathers family. His english name was Bill (or William) Smith, i do not know his maori name. He came to australia in the late 1800's /early 1900's to work as a sheep shearer / stockman.

I am told that he originally came from the top-end of the North Island. Also, that he was a very tall man. I have a photo of him (yet to be scanned) and hope that it might also help to locate family members in new zealand.

am keen to hear about any leads that might help to find his family. thank you for your help.
