  • Notes 
    • (Research):Christine Taylor 2010 [Times of Malta]
      Family history research....I also have another connection with Malta through another branch of my family by the name of Burgis. My great grandfather William Wade Burgis and his wife Nellie Melvina (Weeks) were in Malta (probably with the military) and had a son born there called Horace on July 14, 1903. I would like to find out the military connection here and if there are any other Burgis connections.
      If anyone can help in any way with any Weeks/Burgis information/leads or add to or throw any light on the above, I would be extremely grateful. Please contact me on christay47@hotmail.com. or write to me at 80, Genesta Road, London SE18 3EU, United Kingdom.
