Hello folks,
Thanks to some very generous people on this site,i recently found my Great Uncle, Eden West was sent to Canada through the Middlemore Home in Birmingham.My question is thatthe records i have found on him do not give much information and i am still trying to find out what he did (Family Lore states he got himself into some sort of trouble) to get into that situation in the 1st place.Any advice would be most welcome.
Thank you in advance
Vicki :-)

As you already have a post about this elsewhere (if people have previously helped you) then could you nudge up that post, or change the title to incorporate 'new information required' or similar so that we do not duplicate information already found.
(Also, you have not put any dates on this request, so we would have to repeat research that you have already done just to get to what you know.)

Google search gives this as a previous thread:

Have nudged up older thread, better to continue on there.

Vicki, just use the "My Threads" link on the left to get back to previous queries.
