Stopping in Preston, Lancashire was an important stop for us. As my Great Grandparent's my mothers Fathers family came from here. They immigrated in in 1909.  many Generations back are from here thought the town does not look anything like what it did back then.  We were able to go into St Johns. where my 2nd great Grandfather was Christened and married. We then walked over to St. Georges.  but unfortunately they were closed so could not get photos of name plates that were in side and unfortunately old graves outside where gone and  a parking lot in their place.

We also did not go to the Old Preston Cemetery as we already have photos of the Headstones there thanks to my Uncle David.  Today  was rainy and cold so we decided since we had those it was ok to pass by.  But the point was we came saw where they came from and Thanked them at St. Johns at least..
