gidday all, my name is cassy stewart, i live in queensland australia. i am searching for family members of my great-grandfather. his english name was Bill (William) Smith, i do not know his maori name but am trying to find records. he came to australia in the late 1800's / early 1900's and worked as a sheep shearer / stockman.

he came from the top-end of the north island. he was a very tall man. i have a photo of him - i've got to scan it and then can send / attach with emails etc.

my aunts have more information about him, but need to locate it first. when i get this information will add to my enquiry here.

would love to hear from anyone who might know of his family. thank you for your help in any way.
