Seeking: HARRISON #general
Angela Steele <angela.steele@...>
I am trying to trace my grandmother's father. My grandmother lived in
Walthamstow, East London and was born in 1888. Her birth certificate shows her
father as William Henry HARRISON, Woollen Traveller. Her mother Edith Mary
Harrison later described herself as a widow. There is no record at the Public
Records Office of their marriage and they may not have been married but I do
believe there is a chance that he was jewish. Are there any jewish records that I
can search that might prove a marriage or even the existence of William Henry
Harrison in Walthamstow at that time. I would be grateful for any advice you
might give me.
