To whom it may concern
I really am desperate for help, I have spent hours on ywebsites looking for my family history. I just cant get matches. My great grandfather is a mystery to me as I cant trace him at all. my parnets dont know much about him except that he was Richard Wenks an englishmen, who immigrated from I think wales to Africa. I dont kno weather he stayed in south africa at all but I was told that around 1916 him and my great granmother Anna (Pretoirus) were waitng for a ship back to England from Mozambique. Anna was pregant with my Grandfather Arthur when Richard Wenks fell sick with the spanish flu/fly epidemic and died. Reasons unkown Anna did not what to keep Arthur so Anna father Opua Pretorius adopted his grandson Arthur who became Arthur Pretorius, he was born 8 November 1916.
i really would love to find ties with the wenks and find out about the family mystery. I have used websites where I found it costly only to find out nothing.

I'm looking for information on the Tri family, before they immigrated to the United States from Lorraine, France. One brother, Paul, immigrated about 1873. His brother John (Jean) immigrated either before or after that date. The last (and eldest) brother, Peter (Pierre) immigrated about 1882, along with this wife and children.
Looking for information on John Campbell Noble, born 1825 in Toronto "Upper Canada" his birht certificate state parents as Robert, a farmer, and Margaret McMunn. His death certificate states his mother as Margaret Allen. He emigrated to Victoria, Australia around 1855
