Dear All

Have received UK Naturalisation info as per below
from 1886 for Benjamin/HARRIS.
I'd be interested to hear >from anyone who is searching
HARRIS >from Sulwaki and also >from Livonia, Latvia, where
Sarah Rebecca was born. Benjamin's wife was Annie nee SILVERMAN.
I have further information going forward except for Barnett
and the Cemetery where Benjamin is buried is in a state of
collapse so I'm not sure of his father's name.
