....new member here. Just found your site while browsing. I am very new to genealogy and very overwhelmed and confused!

I'm looking for information for England and not really sure where to start. Here is my information:

grandmother Joyce Ducharme nee Clark (born Canada), her mother is Florence Elizabeth Clark nee Felton b. 29 Feb 1908 (not sure where in England) d. in Canada, she may have had a sister named Mary ukn of any other siblings, her mother was Mary Felton (ukn maiden name) and her father was Fred Felton.

I know my ggrandmother Florence came to Canada when she was 16yrs.

I look forward to learning from everyone here.

Pam

Hi I looked up FreeBMD and I couldn't find a Florence Fenton that was an exact fit. The nearest I got was June 1908 in Salford. Other Florence Fenton's were even further out for the date and had other middle names. Have you anymore details about parents, other siblings, port she left from. Whether they came from South or North England.
