Searching for my paternal grandfathers roots.

+4 votes
My grandfather, Harry Goodwin lived in Phila., Pa. USA. He married Rosie Herzog in March of 1917. They had six children, my father being the oldest. I really do not recall meeting anyone from his family, nor ever heard of them being mentioned. He passed away in 1971. I am not sure but I believe that during his middle years he worked in a meat packing plant. I have checked census records on I am drawing a blank. I believe my mother once told me that his family was English. Any help at all will be appreciated.
