Author: GEEULM8890 Surnames: Edgington, Broome Classification: queries Message Board URL: http://boards.rootsweb.com/surnames.edgington/245/mb.ashx Message Board Post: Does anyone know how to 'jump the pond'? Are there legal papers for indentured servants? Would there be a record of a stowaway anywhere? Any British or Welsh Edgingtons (or a variation of surname) looking for a teenage George that disappeared or one that is presumed dead as a teenager? Most of us Edgington descendants in the USA come from George, but his trail ends in Philadelphia. How would one go about trying to find early to mid 1700 records from the UK? BTW, his wife, Margaret Broome's documents don't jump the pond either that I can find. Any help would be appreciated. Important Note: The author of this message may not be subscribed to this list.
