Hi   my maiden name was Simons.  My Aunt traced our history back 300 years to northern Germany and that we were Jewish at the time.  Our family settled in Herefordshire, England when they left Germany.  Smart move I would say.  We are not Jewish any more but we are also Canadian.  My grandfather and his twin brother settled in Saskatchewan, Canada then Grampa's brother moved to Alberta and then to Vancouver, British Columbia.  They ran a bakery in England, we still have family there but it has been hard for me to find the connections on line.  I know that we are not Dutch Mennonites (Menlo Simons was a Mennonite creator in Holland).  My Grandfathers name was Ernest Simons his brothers name was Bertram Simons.( I know Bert and Ernie)  They have been gone for years now and so are my Mother and Dad.  Lots of girls in the Simons family but I have a few male cousins that are carrying on the name.. Let me know if you know anything about our connections.  This may help you.
