Trying to find Hoofe

ProfilePosted byOptionsPost Date


Val Report 30 Jan 2003 20:46

I'm trying to find any relatives belonging to my dad's side. My dad was born in Stormy Village, Skelmersdale in 1919 into a mining family. His mum was called Rose and his dad, Mark. I think the original spelling of our surname was Hoof, my dad said that the e was added by my grandad and also I think the name originated in Shropshire. Any information would be most welcome.
