Brookes, Worcester to Buffalo?
« on: Wednesday 20 July 05 15:55 BST (UK) »
Could anyone track down or let me know how to track down Sidney and Jack Brookes who (according to family hearsay) emigrated to Buffalo Canada.  Problem is I don't have birthdates for them, they were both born in Dudley Worcester if that helps. I do know that their sister Eliza had her first child in 1896.  So she would have been born around 1876?  Don't know if this is possible but worth a try.

Do you think perhaps Buffalo, New York?  Buffalo is just over the Canadian border
