If your ancestors came from Europe over to the New World then they would have come through England and most probably left from Liverpool's Waterfront or Albert Dock. Take a look at the place from where your relatives set sail. It is a very moving thought.
Yesterday I had a family day out there to the Albert Dock, named after Prince Albert Queen Victoria's husband. Prince Albert officially opened it and it is a Grade 1 listed building in Britain.
When we were students 40 years ago Liverpool was a hideous place - fogs, blackened , dirty buildings, total dereliction of certain areas, fires, pollution. Filthy.
Now Liverpool is clean, lively, bustling café society with many family attractions. A total transformation in less than 40 years.
