Thames/Auckland area DAVID /MAKARETA -REHIAI aka REHARI
« on: Friday 01 December 17 19:09 GMT (UK) »
Hi there,

My first post. I am keen to find out more about my great grandmother and great grandfather. Adam Walters and Margaretta Madge Rehiai Walters. Can find Adam in the Birth Deaths and Marriages but not Margaretta.
Does anyone have any info. She had a brother called David and they both died tragically young.
Kind regards
Barbara..ps I am in Wales

I am trying to locate David and his sister Margaretta. They lived in Thames but it is possible that they came from Kaeo. Any help gratefully received.

A warm welcome from me also.

I see that a Margaretta Rehiai married an Adam Walters in 1912 in New Zealand --- so did they stay there as you are in Wales?

And who is Thomas David Rehiai please? (Sorry about all these questions but the title of your post differs from the people you mention in the message, which is confusing to me -- I am easily confused!)

Thanks both.
I think that David Rehiai lived in Thames. His sister Margaretta Madge Rehiai is buried in Shortland Cemetery and was alive 1894 - to 1024. She was married to Adam Walters in Thames. But, I want to know where the Rehiai family came from. I think it might be Kaeo.
I live in Wales but am a Kiwi so the family are still based basically around the Thames area although the Rehiai clan seemed to disappear which suggests a misspeliing of the name.
I know that the brother and sister died very young but know nothing else about their lives nor about Adam Walter's life.
I would get to Thames if I could and look things up in the library.

Cheers

Barbara

So to clarify we are talking about birth, marriages and deaths in New Zealand and not the UK? I'll ask a Mod to move this post to the NZ board as you will probably get more help there from people who have access to records.

Hello Barbie,

Welcome to Rootschat.......... :)

So far these are the only references found on NZ BDM for the name of Rehiai [all marriages]:

1893/464   Levinia Kate   Hamilton   William   Rehiai


1912/5868   Margaretta   Rehiai   Adam   Walters

Can you provide us with approximate birth and or death dates for David & Margaretta?

Forgive me if you know this -- but have you seen this website;

http://www.bdmhistoricalrecords.dia.govt.nz/Home/

The New Zealand Government unfortunately destroyed census records after extracting statistics etc -- but there are some New Zealand records on line, such as Electoral registers, death records and more - on the Find My Past website.

There may be other sites also which contain useful information.

Maybe also search for New Zealand Newspapers
https://paperspast.natlib.govt.nz/newspapers  (these ARE searchable)

I am English so I hope someone from New Zealand picks up this thread and will be able to help you more regarding research in that country.

Good Luck
