Hi. I was just browsing around to see what my grandmother's surname meant and I stumbled on this thread. My grandmother is Virginia Beigie Raphael. She is from Cleveland, Ohio. She still has family memebers living in that area. If you need any information to connect your geneaology, you can send me an email at email@example.com
. She has lived in Ohio pretty much her whole life. I know she has family in Ohio, PA, and Canada. She is also still with us and can answer questions you may have.
