        Catherine Jane Wallis was my paternal grandmother's mother. I would love to see a copy of her birth certificate, as there is a discrepancy as to whether she was born in Southampton or Wales, as you have said. Can you please contact me so we could arrange for me to have a copy? My grandmother was her eldest daughter, Melita. Thanks, Deborah Wallis [email protected]

        Hi, Great stuff, Peter. The child in front on the left side is Carl Felton (they kept the toddler boys in dress-like garments back then). Carl married my great aunt Mabel Colbert and they and their six kids lived in Somerville. The Colbert family immigrated from Cobh, Cork, Ireland - and since the Felton's did too, it seems likely the Cotters and Feltons and Colberts of Queenstown (Cobh) know each other. Is there anyone out there connected to these families who might be at all familiar with t...

        To Mr. Joseph Elias, Lebanon, as precious as it is, is and has always been a name of a mountain: Mount Lebanon, for as far as you want to go back in history. The fact that the French mandate (and the British mandate as well) decided to formulate an entity and call it Lebanon and separate it from its main land does not mean - and should not mean - that Lebanese are not indeed Syrians. If you prefer, you can call the Syrians: Lebanese, if this would make you feel better, but I don't think it woul...

        Sorry your getting confused between my great uncle and my great grandad. My great grandad immigrated to Africa he had a clot in his leg and it stopped him breathing on the way to the bath.

        Hi. I am doing some research on my family tree. I have a great great grandfather named Peter Funk who lived in NYC. I saw the Titanic exhibit a few years ago there and was coincidentally given Annie Funk's boarding pass. I saw your post on Encyclopedia Titanica and am wondering if perhaps Annie and Peter were related? Do you know of any relatives of hers with his name?

        I saw the exhibit in NYC a few years ago and was given Annie's boarding pass as well. Coincidentally, I have an ancestor named Funk too. Wonder if I am distantly related to Annie?
