Thank you for the welcomes. I do have lots of pictures that i can add when i get round to it. I also have pictures of houses my family lived in around the nechells area. I am also try to find a newspaper article from the 60's about our little row of houses. It was in the Daily Sketch and was about our houses being haunted as they were alleged to have been built on or near a Jewish graveyard hence the name Betholem Row. Will update you if i get the info

Having spent part of my life in the Nechells area between the years of 1953 and 1969 on and off, you will have to let us know where your family came from and we might be able to supply you with some photos of the area that you might like.
