To whom this may concern, i was wondering if you would have additional information about the people listed on your site. I am currently trying to research into my whakapapa and would really appreciate any additional information. The family name my family and i are particularly interested in
would be the Rudoph Family.

Look forward to your reply 0278241331

Kia ora koutou. Just wanted to say how awesome your site is - an fantastic repository! I was wondering if one of the site visitors (R.A.Williams) had been given any feedback re his query into the Thom whānau. I only ask because I recognise the name Thom and \'some\' of the iwi/hapu he mentioned as being Tainui (mind you, that post was a while ago). There are a few places he/they could look for links to their Tainuitanga. I have a few here:

R.A.Williams
Thank you for allowing me access to your Whakapapa.
(I feel like a crook looking into someone else private affairs, So I'll give you a little something back,as I dept C.T.could.)
I don't know if I join up at this stage, but my 1st kuzz Kids do,because of her ties with her ex partner Mark Heke.
Cherries ties are from: Foulis of Edinburgh,Scotland 1418-1814,Lawlor of Killarney,Co Kerry ,Ireland 1786-1840,Thomas of Carmarthenshire,Wales, 1749-1836,

In 1841,one of two of our Scottish 5X Great Grand Parents landed on the West Coast of N.Z.at Cornwalliss,Manukau.They were the Lawlors.
1850 saw the Lawlors at Thames as our Ansister had become the 1st Law in forcer there. He also became a lay preacher and had a little church built for him at Taraua.
In 2005 we held part of our Lawlor reunion in the church, located 2-3 Mminutes on the North side of Thames.
For the 1st time in our lives some of us saw who we all came from on the Scottish side,(what a great 2 day affair that was,as it was far too short to get around all the people there.For some reason unknown to the writer none of Cherrie's family were in attendance.
It was from this reunion I meet 3 great women who over 20 years had spent a great deal of time and money to put the Lawlor reunion and a book together.
The book is called: "The 3 Worlds of Ann & Henry Lawlor,
By Louise Buckingham.dec 2009.
ISBN 0-473-10551-9.
I give you this Ref in case one of you are a member to the NZSG,in Auckland.
Louise gave them a book to store.

Our Maori side.
Much of it has been hidden for well over 110years and well do so until I can fix it so all our lost family's are found.
There are land issues here ok,sorry perhaps one day.
But Marks kids should be prod from where our grand parents lines, we all come from.
I don't no Cherrie's Mum side that well,only her name is Nancy Thom (nee Tainui.)Her dad's was William Albert Thom elder brother to my mum and 4th down from the eldest(Sadly the first to were girls and they died in the 1920's)There is an elder brother before William.
His parents were Te Wai Taukiri, of Ngati Tamainu,Ngati Tu Hikirangi,Ngati Te Kiriwai,Maniapoto.
His dad was Eugene Albert Thom,Maniapoto, Ngati Mahuta lines.

I could go on for ever here but I think this is enough to sweeten the apple at this time ah.

Please feel free to Txt me anytime, or drop me a line an I'll endeavor to answer all at some stage.

I do not speak Maori, I'm at a loss with out it, I know.

Cheers From R.A.Williams.
