|Over the past several months I have been researching the Posliff family tree and have successfully created a 200 year direct lineage of the family ( 1798-1997 ). My immediate family , and that of all our known relatives in north america, are direct descendants of George Posliff and Elizabeth Ann Pogson, who immigrated to Canada from Finingley,Yorkshire,UK in 1853. Several brothers of George remained in Yorkshire, and I have now been in contact with some of their descendants who were unaware of their Canadian and US relatives.Currently I have information on some 40 plus families with direct links to the Posliff line. |
Research is also being done on the other branches of my own and my wife's families. We are specifically researching the following:
Hamilton : Immigrated to Canada from Aarmagh,Northern Ireland around 1900. Sarah Jane Hamilton was my grandmother.
Rowland : Family of Jesse Rowland immigrated to canada in mid 1800s from County Down, Northern Ireland. Jesse Rowland was my mothers grandfather.
Adair : Family of Joseph Adair immigrated to Canada from County Down, Northern Ireland in 1830's. Joseph Adair was the great grandfather of my mother, Lilias Adair.
Milne : Family of William Milne who immigrated to Canada from Greenoch,Scotland in 1924.William Milne was the grandfather of my wife, Heather Milne.
Parker: Family of William Parker who immigrated to Canada in 1923 from Cardiff,Wales. William Parker was the grandfather of my wife,Heather Milne.
