I have been searching (forever) for some relatives in England so hopefully someone will see this and respond, I know the chances are slim but here goes. We are working with 2 last names here. My grandfather Benjamin Holloway (Oliver) was born February 5, 1889 at 9 Andover Place, District Paddington County of Middlesex. He had a brother born December 7, 1896 at 2 Kilburn Park Road, District Paddington, County of London, his name was James Charles Holloway (Oliver)? The parents of these boys were Benjamin Holloway and Margaret Holloway (maiden name was "Green"). However, the one boy immigated to Canada in the early 1900's and got married here and my dad was born in Canada and all his siblings, BUT we can't seem to locate anyone that's still alive and knows anything. We have a picture of James Charles and his daughter Francis born in 1930 so I was hoping she might still be alive and well and could give some answers. At the time of this letter they were living at 31 Blenheim Terrace, Abbey Road, St. Johns Wood, NN8. We think that Benjamin Thomas Oliver (as we knew of him) James Charles's brother, changed his name from Holloway to Oliver when he immigrated, but we have no proof, except that a cousin (from my mom's side) has been helping with research and went to the address on the letters and found the information to all match except the last name. SO IF ANYONE SEES THIS THAT CAN HELP I WOULD GREATLY APPRECIATE IT.

Hi! I'm a descendant of the Van Cleef family, a family who I feel has a very interesting story to tell. Unfortunately, their story has been hushed up quite well, and I only have a little bit of it. The Van Cleef's lived in Fayette, Tyre, and Seneca Falls. The the first of the Van Cleef to live in Upstate New York was Isaac and his wife Femmetje, of Phebe, Quick. Their son, Uriah, is my great-great-great-great-great grandfather, and he died 1830 in Fayette. He is buried in the Burgh Cemetery. His son, Tunis, married Maria Alleman. I have a some interesting stories about their son, Devereaux, who married Harriet White, and also their grandson, Elwood, who married Ethel Bordner. I was wondering if anybody had any stories, notes, pictures, or information about them that they could share? I'm willing to send my info on the family as well. Also, does anyone know if any letters or journals of theirs exist still, which I could possibly scan or type up? Thank you so much. I'm a high school student living in France, so learning about my New York ancestors is a little difficult. I go back to Upstate New York every summer. Once again, I would be willing to share information I have on the family already. Thanks again!

In my possession, a box of letters, post cards, school reports, informal agreements, etc. that concern a George T. O'Dell who was a dentist, probably in Indiana. Based on information found in this box, George T. was the son of John O. O'Dell of Fountain County, IN. John's father was Telemachus Odell, whose biography appears on the Genweb site for Fountain County, IN. This box was given to me in hopes that it might add to my own Odell genealogy, but it obviously does not belong in this branch of the family. George T. and wife, Elizabeth (born in Canada) were enumerated in St. Joseph County, IN in the 1930 census. In that enumeration, they were the second family living in household #161 (ED #71-33, Sheet 8B). The first family enumerated in that household were listed under the surname "Marley". Other names appearing on papers in this box are Dale A./Dona A. Rigdon; Emma Dell Odell (sister to George T.)and Thomas P. Cifaldi. Letters concerning the latter are written in French. I would like to get this box to someone who has some family connection to those mentioned in the documents. Interested parties please contact me at e-mail: Please provide some evidence of family connection to Telemachus, John or George T. Odell.

He was naturalised in 31st Jan 1857. He had nine children. They were all born in NZ. My great grandmother was from Sunderland, England. Her name was Elizabeth Thompson in abt 1865.

Looking for mother and father of Hassie J. Grant (Brumitt) (born MAY 3, 1895, died MAR. 28, 1954) Tennessee. Her husband was John M. Grant (born Mar 28, 1882, died May 5, 1971).

I have an ancestor listed by the name of Jacob Fredrik HERFT (JFH), said to have been from Hungary. There are no dates of birth/marriage/death or a spouse listed for JFH. The next lot of names listed are that of his children: Jacob Daniel, George Reiner, Fredrik Magnus and Helena - all of the children are said to have been born in Ceylon (now known as Sri Lanka) during the time of the Dutch occupation of Ceylon. A search of numerous websites has drawn a complete blank as to where Jacob Fredrik Herft might have actually originated from. A recent search showed a Jacob Harft, a soldier from Stettijn, which was a province in Pomerania. If anyone can assist me with this long, drawn out search it would be most greatfully appreciated and gladly welcome. Thanks Sylvia

He has 3 children at this time Clara B. age 19, James age 17, and Joseph age 13. Samuel Jr. was born in Sandy Ridge, Stokes Co. NC Feb. 19, 1880 to Samuel Peter Martin Sr. and Mary Frances Richardson Martin. He married in Patrick Co. VA to Locky Ann Bullin on Sept. 5, 1899. Would love to get in touch with any remaining members of this family! Please email me at Thank you.

I am searching for my half-sisters, daughters of Roy F. Sykes (Sikes). Birth dates would have been after 1947 and before 1955. These two half sisters were at his funeral and I actually spoke to them, but due to my mom's aversion to my having further contact, I broke off contact.

I am still trying to find information on my German great-grandfather. I new him as Fredrich Wilhelm Paul ARNOLD, born 16 October 1890, Harburg in the province of Hanover (Fredrich Wilhelm Paul Arnold could have been an Alias name). He may have been about 13 to 14 years old when he left Germany. I know very little about his German back ground and I would like to know if he had any brothers or sisters and who his parents were. He has named his parents on his naturalization paper as Fredrich and Olga. I was told my grandmother "Freda" was named after his sister, but once again I cannot be sure of this. He worked on several stations once he arrived in Australia. When he married he lived and worked on the mines in Broken Hill Australia. Thank you so much for reading my e-mail. With kind regards, Debra Staker.

Looking for Mary Ellen Rogers who married Brent or Brian Wilson. She grew up in Millington Tennessee and her husband was in the military. She may be working as a cosmetician. Have been trying to locate her for years - please help.

Nora Emily Thompson, born and died in 1958 in South Africa. Florence is her daughter and has been looking for any information on her mother for over 50 years, if anyone has any information please let us know immediately

My grandfather and grandmother according to family knowledge crossed the Mexico border into the US in Texas approximately in 1919 +/- 2 years. His name was Pedro Herrera (DOB 1894) and hers was Catarina Herrera (DOB approx 1899). According to US Cenus data of 1930 it was listed that both of them were born in Texas hence my confusion. I have found supporting info based on US Border crossings that they both crossed. Also based on the Texas Vital Statistics of 1937 for my fathers birth year her maiden name was Catarina Montavbo. Due to most of my fathers family having passed away I can not verify the border crossing or for that matter if her name was Montavbo or Montavo. The US Census data of 1930 appears to be the most accurate as it does list all my Uncles and Aunts except for my father who wasn't born until 1937. I would like to find a good research site for Mexico's census or direct knowledge of my father's side in Mexico.

I'm looking for the names of the parents, or any other siblings of my grandfather Marius Olaff Wilhelm Olsen born 4th February 1878 in Helsingor in Denmark. He arrived in the Port of Adelaide South Australia on the 4th August 1905 on the ship "Wandel" and stayed there the rest of his life. Any information would be most helpful.

I am seeking information regarding my grandfather and his parents. My grandfather died when my dad was only 5 years old, so there is no known information. The info I do have is as follows: Charles Henry Van Ness, born Jan 5, 1913 @ Paterson General in Paterson, New Jersey. Mother is listed as Rose Van Ness, father is blank. I was told by the Paterson Vital Statistics that it is listed that Rose was 19 when she gave birth. She was either born in 1893/1894. My grandfather died in Paterson on Sept 23, 1951. I have found a census record from 1930 that places my grandfather with the McManamey family (Charles, Ella, & Peter C McManamey) and it has him listed as "newphew". Aside from that, I have not been able to find records of my grandfather's whereabouts prior to 1930, and have found no information on his mother Rose. If anyone could help me out with this mystery, it would be GREATLY appreciated!!

Does anyone have any information at all about a baby boy that was left in Parkgate near the area of Churchbank not far from the centre of Bradford. He was my Grandfather and all I have been told was that he was found by two night soilmen. The baby had been well dressed before being left in a cardboard box. He was taken to St. Lukes workhouse from where he was adopted six months later. His date of birth was registered as 1st January 1896 and he was given the name John Parkgate. Parkgate being where he was found and I think perhaps John was one of the night soilmen. Over the years, I'm thinking that someone may have had the need to talk about this. Perhaps someone who left the baby unwillingly and was later troubled by their actions. Anything at all you may have heard, however small, would certainly be of help. He was later adopted by Bella Wilkinson and given the name George Wilkinson. She was not allowed to drop the name John Parkgate and officially he was known as George John Parkgate Wilkinson. I know it wouldn't help in searching my family tree, but I would just like some idea of who he was. At that time I understand there were many Irish immigrants in the area and perhaps travellers, and young lasses in service. Anything at all could have been possible. Please can you think? Were you ever told anything about the baby? Please pass it on to me if you were.

Looking for descendants of Thomas Alexander Robertson, born NYC, according to records, 1 October 1883. Married to Florence Anna (maiden name unknown) 28 Dec., 1922, formerly of Schenectady, NY. Please contact with ANY info regarding either party.

I am trying to find the true parents of my grandmother. We knew her as Georgina Atkinson nee Coulman, born in Hull 1889 June 4th, but her death certificate had her as Georgina / Georgiana Atkinson nee Coulman / Cammell Laird born Hull in 1889 December 4th, 1889 June 4th. Both state that her mother was called Georgina Cammell. My research shows my great grandma became the housekeeper for Mr. Coulman. When her daughter was one year old she later married him. My query is about the family rumor that my grandma was the result of the downstairs maid (Georgina Cammell and the upstairs gentleman Mr. Laird) or did Georgina Cammell disgrace the Cammell Laird family by getting pregnant out of wedlock and get banished from the family and dropped the Laird part of her name. The Cammell Laird family were shipping magnates in Scotland. Please can someone help, I keep hitting a brick wall.

I have traced the Pauze name to Jean Pauze (Pose) in La Rochelle France born abt 1613. He was married to Isabelle Hebert and had a son named Jacques (b.1609 France d.1709 Quebec. Does anyone have any information going back further than that? Does anyone have any information as to how/when they came to Quebec Canada? I appreciate any help. Bryan Pauze

My name is Emily M. Matthias and I am a doctoral student in the Department of Curriculum and Instruction at New Mexico State University. I am also a family historian, working on my own family (hi)story since 2000. The purpose of my Doctoral study is to explore ideas surrounding cultural identity formation using the pursuit of genealogy as one lens. I am interested in hearing from fellow family historians who are working on their own research. Please go to my website at , “Take My Survey.” and tell me about how your search has helped to define your sense of cultural identity.

I would like to know what Catholic church my grandmother had a funeral Mass given for her,and what Funeral Home held her last rites. Her name was Agata (Aggie) Bernas (Barnas)(Barnarz). Her maiden name was Galus. She is interred in Tier 7 Grave 13 Section Old West, died April 15,1888.She died of Typhoid fever at the age of 31 years. She is buried in the Mt Elliott Cemetery in Detroit. I do not have any information about her other than what I have written. I do not have the exact date of arrival to the United States other than she and her husband Wojciech and their daughter Aniela came here in 1884. I would be so pleased for any help I may receive in the difficult times I have had. Cordially, Jerome Kowalski
