If you spot an error (typo or otherwise), or you have some additional information, please
Thanks to all who have sent data and images. They will be accessible as soon as possible.
Finally, you'll need to be patient... I'm a newbie to site building.
Be aware that whilst I have an incredible amount of data & images, only a small proportion is currently online.
So please tell me about your family so I can try to help you with your research!
Even if you're not a researcher, but have a family connection, we would love to hear from you.
Hopefully you will all find something of interest...
