I am searching for more information about The Mitchell`s that emigrated  to the US. Specfically the Rochester area. Edmund Mitchell was born in 1868 and died in 1924. He apparently met his mothers relations out there and settled. His mothers  brother moved to the US earlier and his name was Robert Birch, born in Ellesborough, Buckinghamshire, UK b1838. Any info of living relatives would be great. Also My Grandfathers sister Clara Sly ( nee Mitchell ) husband George Sly lived in Rochester NY about 1920 and I know he worked at the Kodak factory. Any hel appreciated.
