Hi I am new to this whole genealogy thing. I have started to look up the history of both my dads and my mothers side of the family. On the Filkin side I have got back to a Robert Ignatius Filkin born in Preston Lancashire England in 1842. He has a brother Henry W Filkin born in Bermuda in 1841. Their father was William Filkin and mother was Jane Filkin. Both brothers were in the Royal Engineers. Robert was my great, great grandfather and came to Hamilton Ontario Canada where the rest of the family now lives. Some later moved to NY and some Mich. I do not know if the brothers have any more siblings. I also only have their father and mothers name from the mairage certificate, no location date of birth etc. If anyone can help please contact me. I have a lot of info after they came to Canada but some spots are blank. If I can help anyone please do not hesitate in contacting me.
