Teresa Report 26 Apr 2007 20:27

I am looking for any contacts with people who had relations who worked on the boats, during the industrial revolution. I have quite a lot of info that i am happy to share with other people trying to find there ancesters. Or If you have anything to add to my collection of boat families, I would be pleased to here from you. I am a direct decendent to the canal people from the very start of the canal age. most of therse families are related in one way or another., therefore I must have quite a few relations that i dont know. it would be nice to find a few.
