Im currently in the states, this is a very confusing situation, I am searching for my Grandfather my dad has passed, and it still isnt quite known for sure his offical given name, I know it to be Alby (albert) Stubbings, Anderson, Tehuia, Fatu. The surnames are those he collected by the families that raised him, my dad was born in Taumaunui, and it is believed that my Grandmother, his mum died at early 20's shortly after his birth, then he was placed with a uncle, and raised as brothers, by his mum, Stubbings, is her name. That would make her an aunt to my dad. I am at a complete loss, searching for the exact percentage of maori, and his connections to the hms bounty, There are many unanswered questions, and I am hoping that someone knows somthing, I dont expect my Grandfather Watti to be still living, but if someone knows somthing or has details any at all, please email me,..
