Hi - Can anyone help me with William Miniken who appears in the 1820 census for Brownsville, Fayette, Pennsylvania? I have a "lost" William Miniken on my English family tree, who apparently emigrated to the US and was described as being gone from England "some time ago" in his father's will dated 1824. Does anyone know anything at all about this William Miniken in Brownsville? Any help would be most gratfully received. Thank you.

Hi - this is really kind of you to help me out. I'm based in the UK - do you know where I can get or view this publication? Is it online at all? I have subscription to Ancestry UK but not US - or is it a book or CD that I could order? Thanks in advance for (more!) help. Valerie

Thanks very much for letting me have these details. What I'd really LOVE to know is whereabouts in England William was born, and his approximate birth date. I've had a look at the WPGS website, and I was wondering about enrolling as a member. Do you think the members' areas would have much additional information that could help me? Thanks again for all your help. Valerie
