Hi Cedric

Unfortunately I don't know your grand parents but am working on my family tree so I might come across their names soon, hopefully. I am from a very strong Ngarotata family background and am just wandering the relationship between yourself and the Ngarotatas?

Kia Ora Cedric,

I have printed a copy of your message and passed onto a work colleague who has asked me to give you his email address.

His name is Richard Brougham, but we call him Dick. He will be able to help you out as your nanny Martha is his mother Sarah, sister.

He has been researching his Whakapapa for some time now so has a bit of information. And we see from your profice you are located in Turangi. He has a sister who lives there as well.

Dick's email addy is richardb@pconnect.co.nz

I see your last name is Campbell...any relation to the famous Michael Campbell???

Hope this is of help.
