Hi, my dad is looking for distant relatives.
His fathers name was William Guinen.
Williams father changed his name due to a family dispute.
Our family came to USA during the potato famine in the 1800s.
Around the middle of the century to be more specific.
Anyways, William went to Tiverton, Rhode Island, and eventually settled in Boston/Fall River area.
William had 6 children.
One named John [my father]
4 boys, 2 girls. If im correct.
William also had siblings.
Ernest, Bernard, John aka Jack, Agnes, Joseph.
He married Elena Willet.
His parents names were Julia and Joseph.
The family was raised mostly in the Boston/Fall River area.
Please if you have any more information, or suspect you are a relative, I beg you, PLEASE email me, and we can chat.
My dad was born in 1939, hes getting up there in age, and as he says hes the last of the mohicans. [Last of his family.]
All his siblings died. He has noone else except for immediate family, and would love to meet some more Guinans/Guinens.
Please. Get in touch.
