info needed on a photo
A photo was on the back of the panui (April 2012) as an unidentified photo. Luckily i recognised the older lady as my great grandmother Ani Rankimakere/Edwares nee Tamati. We have worked out the others are her daughters and confirmed who two of them are, Phoebe and Kuini. The other two are probably Cecilia & Lillian. Ani was also known as Ani Tau. My question is does anyone know where this came from and are there any other photos around of this family. Especially of Hohepa (Ani's husband) and sons Jack, Phil (Felix), Toria. The whanau are really keen to hear about any information especially of Lillian as at this stage we have no photos of Lillian and we are trying to build a history of this whanau. If you think you may know or have any photos or info on this family please reply to me at email@example.com
the full names of the people in the photo are Ani Rangimakere/Rakimakere Edwards nee Tamati. Her children in the photo are Phoebe Edwards, who married McCabe and Verheyde, Kuini Edwards who married Charlie Rewi, Cecilia Edwards who had one child Cecilia Nikora, Lillian Edwards who had 14 children with surnames Stephens, Tse
