A good place to place to start maybe Ropata's daughter Patricia Florence Rudolph who was in Sandringham Road, Mt Roskill, she has all whakapapa pertaining to your query, I know this because I wrote the charts for her while she persued this knowledge. Haven't seen her for some years as in 5 or 6 so if she is not listed in the white pages then you could contact another daughter of Ropata me Nga Huia by the name of Lorraine Morunga who will be listed also in the white pages in the area of Waterview, Pt Chev again Akld, and if that fails the try the son Robert Rudolph listed in the Kelston area. Tell Lorraine when you contact her that Willie Te Awa said hi and wish them all well. Let us know how you get on Kina, ka kite e hoa and I hope this helps you. Bill aka Matangirau.
