WELCOME to my website, which has a genealogical connection to Bolton, Lancashire, a former mill town noted for its cotton industry.

It originally came into being as a vehicle for anyone wishing to display photographs of Bolton ancestors they couldn't identify, and over time gradually expanded.

IF you have any photographs/documents that you think might be of interest, or that you cannot identify, please scan them to Valerie, with a brief description of the item, stating clearly what is required. Hopefully other people will be able to supply the answer.

ALSO included is material which may be useful to those researching their family history.

THIS site is being run as an accessory to the ENG-LAN-BOLTON mailing list.

I hope you enjoy my site and find it of benefit in your research.
