My Grandfather migrated to England in about 1903 and applied for naturalization in
1911. The papers state that he was born 18 August 1877 in Szczucin, Austria to
Godel Isrelowicz and Gitel November. His name is given as David November (also
known as Daniel November).

There is anecdotal suggestion that my Grandfather was >from a small village outside
Cracow, Poland. Because of the pogroms, he escaped out of Poland with his brother,
Maurice, by swimming across a river and eventually into Russia, then worked his way
on the trains, across Russia, Europe, and then finally by sea to England. Maurice
stayed on in Switzerland, and became a Swiss citizen eventually.

Can anyone help clarify the situation? I would also like to find out more about my
Great Grandfather - Godel Isrelowicz.

Thank you.
