I am looking for information on Alexander Simnicki born in Russia about 1844. Several ancestrial trees has his birthplace as Peija. Latvia. Riga. As I have no knowledge of Russia I dont know which is right. He migrated to England, I dont know when. I have most of his English family history except his death supposedly about 1880. The 1871 census has his occupation as a 'carver of wood' I am only interested in his life in Russia, his family etc. Any information would be greatly appreciated. Thank you.
