Family Tree News 22 January 2012

Thanks this week to Neil K for getting in touch regarding an old occupation called Bower of Cows. It has been added to the Dictionary of Old Occupations. If you have any evidence to share about this occupation in 19th century Scotland it would be great if you would get in touch with me.

Family Tree News 15 January 2012

I was contacted this week by a family member requesting details about her relatives from the Oldfield family who were killed during the air raids on Coventry during the WW2 Blitz years. I researched details of these five family members (Edward, George, Harriet, Louisa and Mabel Oldfield) free of charge, and also added it to the Coventry Blitz Resource Centre, which I have built up over several years.

It’s a great place to look if you are studying history or researching your family tree and had relatives living in the Coventry area during the 1940s.

Family Tree News 2 January 2012

2012 is here and I will be resuming research work tomorrow. The other day I was contacted by a chap who works freelance for the BBC's Who Do You Think You Are magazine. He asked me to write a few words for a feature he is working on, which I was happy to do. He said my website gets a mention in the article – what a lovely way to start the New Year!
