Dear Ken,

I'm just starting out on a search which I hope to spend more time as and when I have it! I wonder if the information that I have (from my own mother) is of any interest to youin your rsearch: My maternal grandmother was a Sarah Raphael (born around 1878 in East London). Her parents were Joseph and Rebecca (Romaine) Raphael. She was one of 11 children (10 girls + 1 boy) some of whom survived until the mid 1900's. I met Adelaide, Hannah and Joseph in the 1950's. My grandmother died in 1962. Joseph emigrated to America (Boston I believe - something to do with shoes) at the beginning of the 20th century but I'm not sure of the date. I have a faint recollection of him coming to London around 1958 with his wife.
