An unusual request, if you don't mind....
Here at ICME we have received an email from a Brett Cutler, looking for branch history and any information that anyone may have. I have copied the email below;
My very distant Great Grandfather and Great Great Grandfathers were born in the Foundry Industry in the early 1800s in the Bromwich area. The former (Thomas Cutler) was described as a "foundry worker", the latter (John Cutler) as Forgeman.
Would there be any existing foundries that have history going back that far? I've drawn a blank in my search for family history on some aspects of siblings and parentage, and hope that industry records may shed some light on the subject.
If anyone has any information that can be passed onto Brett, please either email Nicola@icme.org.uk, or call Nicola at ICME office, where I can pass on Brett's email address or home address as Brett is based in Australia.
