Intro - Alfred Spiers/Spires

United Nations
Let me introduce myself. I live in Chicago, IL. I recently started a family
tree on ancestry. I exchanged emails with a party who directed me to this site.
I am looking for my family who's name went back and forth with spelling as
(Spiers or Spires) My Great, Great Grandfather was Alfred Spiers or in some
records Spires born Nov. 25th 1848 in Redditch, England, death June 25,1922. He married Hannah Twigger born in Oldbury, England on July 30 1847 and died
Sept. 11, 1936. I am so looking forward to gathering new information and hoping to someday soon traveling to England for further research.

Re: Intro

Thank you so much for posting information relating to my family tree. This is
my 2nd great grandfather. I believe his father to be John Spiers b1782 in Inkberrow, Worchestershire and death 1840, Broomwich, Staffordshire.

His father, Thomas born 1765 in Spernall Warwichshire and death in inkberrow, Worcestershire but don't know year or location.

I seem to be stuck here with no information on Thomas's parents, etc.

Are you a relation to Spiers in anyway?

I so greatly appreciate your posting.
