My Grandfather who passed away in the 90's Frederick Mills I think? His son my father Lester Mills who left NZ for Australia. My uncle is Dennis Williams, one of my sisters whom I cannot find Jodie Mills. Cousins Shane, Aiden Mills, Aunty Netty Mills. Any info would be nice, I really want to learn more about my maori background.

Intereconnected family surnames are: Sealey, Low, Fuller, Terry, Fraser, Jephson, Pardington, Hackett, Ludwig, Homewood, Lamb, Hargreaves, Koopu, Franklin and Brass.

A death search at Births, Deaths & Marriage Online - Historical Records of New Zealand for 'Bernard Mills' between 1840 and 2009 reveals the following:-

Age at Death
1970/49233 Mills Bernard 55Y
