HiMy father Graham Rowe has a DNA match on ancestory.com for a 2nd/3rd cousin called Greg Stanaway. I am trying to solve a bit of a family mystery about my late Grandmother Olive May Rowe (Nee Smith) who was born in 1917 in New Zealand.

Query by MichelleC

The DNA results show 6% Maori so there is an inconsistency with our Family Tree.
Does anyone know Greg Stanaway and his parents/or Great Uncle or Aunty's name?

Thanks

Also in addition to this are there any Auckland/Northland NZ Stanaway family members who have know of my great grandparents Walter Clapcott Smith and Grace Greenland from over 100 years ago. They were neighbours at one stage in Ponsonby and friends

hi Michelle,
Who did Olive marry and when?
Looking to trace his siblings so need his birth date etc
Where are they buried?
Did Olive only have the 1 sister?
