From Alexander on Sun, 23 May 2004, email address defunct on 26 Nov 2004

I have found George Alexander and Sophia Aaron on your website, paternal ancestors of my husband. They came out on "The Emily" in 1852.

From on Wednesday, 30 July, 2008

Dear Elizabeth,
I have just been sent a link to your web-site. It is wonderfull.
You include my ggparents George and Sophia Alexander. George was one of the children of Simon Alexander (died London 1830) and his father was Isaac Alexander. Sophia was descended from Moses Aarons of Birmingham (b. 1717). I have more detailed information if you need it.
I also noticed an entry for John Joseph Treves. This is an interesting family (not related to mine). Gabriel Treves was an Italian jewish snuff-merchant who is said to have founded the Exeter community in about 1735.
sincerely, David Alexander
