Jack Chaumont came to live at Rosedurnate in May, 2005 and resides in the self care area. Jack is 83 and he recently had his first experience with computers when he joined the computer classes at Rosedurnate.
Since then he has been having a daily lesson and really enjoys the Jigsaws, Snooker and the occasional game of Flags MahJongg.
The first time Jack explored the internet there was great excitement, as he found his entire family history line, right back to Normandie in France, posted on the RootsWeb WorldConnect website.
Should anyone be interested in doing their own genealogy search, the RootsWeb WorldConnect link is below. We have found it works better to search for the minimum of information, e.g. surname and either place of birth or place of death.
Jack has spent time researching other areas of the internet and has discovered what a wonderful tool the internet is, when seeking information on almost ANY subject! He has discovered you can download free songs in MP3 format, also download and print out the words to a song, he has checked out the history of boxing and Rugby League and learned a lot about the individual players.
