I am trying to locate the Smith family who lived in Howick NZ in the1980s. Harold, Brenda and their children Philip, David, Susan and Karen. Harold was born in Yorkshire England in 1922. I'd be grateful for any help in finding the family!

Hi, Gail.

Welcome to the boards.

Have you tried "Search all trees" under the Search button above?

Put in the names you have and if you find a possible match you can contact the tree owner to see if you have a connection.

Hi, and thanks a million!

I appreciate that Smith is a common name- it was mine too before I was married - and so I have found research into the family really difficult! I do know that Harold and his family - wife Brenda and choldren David, Philip, Susan and Haren lived at 40 Ridge Rd., Hoeick in the 1980s. Harold was born in Wath on Dearne, Yorkshire, England in 1922. I believe he died in the late 1980s, but I am not sure. I am very keen to find this family, as Harold was my father, and his children are my half brothers and sisters.

Thanks again for offering to help me!

Regards, Gail
