Kia Ora,

Could you help me find information about HAZEL, William he was an American Whaler that came to the East Coast he had a family in Te Araroa and also had another daughter in Hiruharama which is my Gr8 Gr8. I can go back 10 Gr8's on her mothers side but come to a virtual stand still on William HAZEL.

If you can help me it will be much appreciated.

Tena koe panipani,

My name is Viki Hazel, My father was Hoani ruha Hazel...I am currently searching my Gr8 pāpa'(William Charles Hazel) whakapapa aswell, but haven't yet found his name on the whaling ship (Elizabeth) either. Yet in a book I read (Old whaling days) he is named as being on that ship, although he was known back i those days as 'Yankee Bill'...I will keep you informed of any more info...

Nāu te rourou, nāku te rourou, ka ora tātou
