KEREPETI or CLIMO
My name is Louise Climo, I am wanting any information on my paternal Grandmother's family. Her name was Ruiha Kerepeti and she married Henry Climo. She was also known as Louise Climo. My family comes from Whangarei. She had four children, David, Gilbert, Mary and Rose. Any information would be greatly appreciated
