My mother's name was Mary boak, born in Ashington, Northumberland, England (1928) died in Ontario, Canada (2001). She married Thomas Heslop Bell and immigrated to Canada in 1967.
She had a brother Joseph, also deceased. Joseph had a son Gordon who lives in the Newcastle area.
She also had a sister Joyce who lives in Morpeth.
Her Parents were John Boak (1902-1965) and Olive, maiden name Hedley.
John had two brothers, William and George, all from Ashington.
I would be interested in any information about the Boak family history from the Newcastle area, particularly about John Boaks parents.
I live in London, Canada; have a bother Kevin in Canada and another brother Ian in Newcastle.
Any response would be welcome!
