My name is Eric Arthur Elmer.I am the son of George Edward Elmer.My father came from Portsmouth, England in the early 1920’s and married my mother who was born in Cleveland, Ohio but had been raised in England, until she returned to the States with her parents in the early 1920’s.
I do not know much about my family tree except that a large amount of the men were apparently sailors.It is said that one of my father’s relatives immigrated to northern Michigan to do missionary work with the Indians and another immigrated to Argentina but beyond that I know very little.I would like to learn more.
I will list what I do know; perhaps it will be meaningful to you.Any help that you could pass on to me would be appreciated.
