Subject: RE: Lyr Add: Trimdon Grange Explosion
hello everybody
I am looking for my ancestors and recently I found a list of many french people coming from Lorraine (eastern France) who had settled in Trimdon, they had children who were christened in Trimdon. I suppose they emigrated to England to work in the mines but can anyone help me to find out? Most of these persons came from the french town of FRESNES-EN-WOEVRE (region of the MEUSE) around 1830s.
Any clue about where I could find some more information?
Thanks a lot anyway and my apologies for the disturbance;
