Pitcher Family.
« on: Saturday 12 January 13 07:17 GMT (UK) »
Hi,

I am trying to find out any details of the Pitcher family who emigrated from the UK to Canada in about 1911-1913. Their names were Lizzie May (born 1879) & Aubrey George Pitcher (born 1877). They had at least four children;Eva Elizabeth (b 1900),Albert George (b 1904),Edwin Charles (b 1910) & Harry (b 1911).

Regards
