Hi Lorraine,

Thanks for the offer.

I am trying to find out when a family moved from Cockermouth Cumberland UK to Ontario Canada. The details of the family are as follows:

Richard Cass Petch b 1880 Cockermouth
Elizabeth May Petch (née Ellwood) b 1883 Cockermouth
Robert Petch (son) b1901 Cockermouth.

They are in the 1911 UK census living in Salford. Richard was a joiner.

I would be grateful if you can find when they sailed to Canada & if more children were born.

Thanks very much in advance,

Gillian

Hi Lorainne,

Don't know if you can help or might point me in the right direction to obtain further details from this snippet of information regarding a US Naturalization -- Marion Agatha Guthrie, Court District - California, Date - June 9 1954, Petition 109366.
This might be a 1st cousin, once removed I have been searching for, who married a US Serviceman with surname of Guthrie during/after WW2.
Her maiden name would have been McCaffrey and born 25/11/1916.

Thanks

Joe

Hi Lorraine,
Re: Marion Guthrie (nee Mccaffrey), she was born Brisbane, Queensland, Australia but I do not know when she arrived in the USA - it most probably would have been after WW2 between 1945 and 1954.
Thanks for the help.
