Nana's 18 unknown aunts. +uncles

From finding out who was my nana's birth father
I progressed to looking for his parents and siblings
can now name 8 of his 11 siblings born in Russia and
only 2 were infant deaths in Latvia

Most went on to marry + lived in Scotland or USA + lived long lives
and had children .

My nana would have loved to have known she had many cousins and that her birth grandfather was a shopkeeper who lived nearby in Birkenhead until she was 5yrs old . before taking the rest of his family to USA.

Her birth father may also have stayed nearby til she was 11 when he was living in Wales.

Thanks to all the people who helped me on the threads which linked my ancestors to present day . I'm now hoping to contact some of the cousins descendents to see if there are any photos of the ancestors .
