John Swinnerton
« on: Saturday 10 September 16 10:40 BST (UK) »
I have been informed that a John Joseph Swinnerton who was born abt 1892 London England had
emigrated to New York abt 1901.
I can find no entry for John in the England BDMs records.
Or his entry into America for this time frame.
I can find him in the New York City census for 1920 and 1940 with family.
Can anyone see him in the records?
Thanks,
bswinno.

Good one Sandra.
Could very well be as the surname spelling has been found many different ways.
I am sure now that I know which family tree they originate from.
