My grandfather was Te Manu a Ti Tapu (Manu) Ransfield (Ranapiri) from Rotorua and my grandmother was Te Maire Tamihana. My mother was Pare ue Ransfield known as Poly and her sons or my brothers were Wiremu Ransfield now disceased. As i was not brought up with the family i was adopted out and would like to know some family history of both the Ransfield and Tamihana side. These are the Ransfields from Rotokawa. maraes Pikirangi and Rua mata in Rotorua. Please help. Kia Ora
