Re: [englishresearch] Free Genealogy Event -- Essex/East London UK
- Would you be able to help me or direct me to an area that could? My Jewish
greatgreatgrandfather came from Russia to England at a young age, I am told.
He married in 1875 in Dudley, Worchester County; emigrated to Canada
probably around 1885 or 86. His name was Leos Covner and married Matilda
We do not know where to find more information. We live in North Carolina,

- sorry, i'm new at this and i'm seeking help from family members that i have been able to locate.
i went to AOL Member Directory and looked in the city where i know i have/had family members. I sent im's to five of the people i found listed in that city. One young lady agreed to help me :-) she has ended up going to my relatives house and asking them to write me (or log online). .192.com is a website she gave me to look for people also. Good luck --- happy hunting~ Tricia
