red mail Looking for info on Fred Unwin
I am looking for information regarding Fred Unwin, Thomas Unwin, and Alfred Unwin who were born in Bollington, England in/around the mid to late 1880s. We were always under the impression that Fred was an only child, but information was surfaced that Fred may have not have been an only child, he may have had two younger brothers, Thomas and Alfred. Alfred eventually was married in Winnipeg in 1908 and settled in Minot, North Dakota. Fred immigrated to Canada in the early 1900s and eventually settled in Winnipeg, Manitoba. His father was listed as Samuel Unwin on his marriage certificate. I would appreciate any assistance, whatsoever, in helping me research my family's history.
