This site is far from static. Every month there
are new additions (see below), so there is always something new to
discover. I usually have at least one series of articles in progress
along with a selection of other bits and pieces.
If you are a new visitor I hope you will come back
again. To my many regular visitors, thanks for your continued support
and kind words. Thanks also for all the feedback I have received. A
number of features have been incorporated as a result of these. Further
constructive comments are always welcome. You can e-mail me
Finally a number of visitors have asked me about
permission to use material from the site and other legal things. In
order to clarify this you will find the terms and conditions of use on
my contents page.

far on my
Odds & Ends 2 page.

its early days - the late 1920's and early 1930's. The picture quality

evenings are longer and somewhat more pleasant. The gardening season
starts in earnest from now and I'm hoping for some warmer weather while

my mind thinking about more graveyard pictures which will hopefully
result in more stories and more photos to post on here. Hopefully you
too will be thinking of trips to research your family history. No matter
how many photos you see there's nothing quite like being in a place that
your ancestors once trod to get a full impression of their life and

Remember there are regular updates so don't be a stranger!
