Hi Lorraine
If you could do a look up for incoming to the UK I would appreciate your offer.
Looking for Lazarus Kelman entering UK about 1890 from Poland/Russia, possibly with other family members and surname might have been anglised to sound more english?
Thanking you

Hi Lorraine,

Please could you see if you can find any information on DORA IRENE ROUGHTON, she was born Warwickshire 1919 and left the UK in 1951 to go to Canada, she married over in Canada but i have no idea of her husbands name (no children i believe).

And also if you do not mind could i please have the 1901 or 1911 census for DORA A GARDNER (1896/7) Lancashire
Any info you may have greatly appreciated.

Lorraine,

Many thanks for that, it could be them but Hopkins isn't such an unusual name. I have no info on their child, not even if boy or girl, but understand the birth was before their marriage which was in June 1899.

Hi Lorraine,
The only details I have on Anne and Llewellyn are
Anne was born 8.8.1871 in Dolgellau, Llewellyn was born 1868 in Holyhead, Anglesey. Anne emigrated in 1904 she married Llewellyn in Wisconsin, USA and they divorced in 1920, thats all I know.
1901 census has his occupation as Sailor. Hope this is of some use.
