And then are posters like me - trying to be helpful - who can't read clearly! Sorry,
I see the family you are searching stayed in UK and didn't continue to USA! :)
With that cleared up, I would like to ask why you think the couple changed their given
names to Harris and Sarah.
Was that the only family you could find in the UK with that surname and about the same age?
Do you know if the English translations for the names CHaskel and Amalie are Harris and Sarah?
Perhaps Charles and Emelie? I am not familiar with the given name Hirschel - is that a female
given name? Anyway, just asking these questions wondering if you have the exact same family.
It seems like a jump of faith. Again, good luck, Char
