I am researching the Closs family tree, and I have over 4,200 Closs descendants listed. The family that I am researching came from Ireland to Canada in 1818. Most of them settled around Ottawa, Ontario. Some of them went to the Western Provinces in the 1880-1915 time period. I have 21 different people named John Closs and 9 men named Charles Closs in my family tree. I would need to know your father and grandfather's full names, birth dates and death dates (if applicable)to see if they fit into the family tree. Also, the place of birth and death would be helpful.
