Benjamin and Susan Rowe of Newlyn: from fishing to baking

My new blog for the Worldwide Genealogy Blog collaboration is out today, I write one every two months.

“Benjamin ‘Ben’ Jaco Rowe, my great-great-grandfather, was a Cornishman who was born, lived and died in Street-An-Nowan area of Newlyn, Cornwall, England. However as a fisherman he roamed much further afield.”

Full article here.  Photos on the original via creative commons licences on Flickr; this one is Newlyn Harbour, by Tim Green.

Thanks for reading 🙂
