Looking for information on my grandfather, James Aloysuis Drake who was born in Cumberland, England, on May 28 1903. He came to Canada in the late 40's early 50's and worked as a miner.
Particularly interested in his history as he had olive skin, big dark eyes and a great outgoing personality. Are some Drakes celtic? Is there a meditteranean background? Always wondered about this part of my heritage -- can anyone help?

Best bet is to put your names into the search engine on the site at;
the other thing to do is join Barb Marshalls great Drake List. Instructions are at;
This is a discussion area for anyone who has an interest in the surname DRAKE
