In 2013 – after many years away from my initial genealogy work – I was motivated to take it up again when a too-good-to-miss offer of a funded training course became available. So here I am, working my way back, no-one rich, no-one famous, just normal people working hard.
I’m researching my family based in:
- Devon, mainly the three towns of Plymouth and nearby villages
(Glover Keast, Moon, Dolton, Horn, Preece and Tope)
- Cornwall, mainly Paul/Newlyn/Penzance
(Jelbert, Hosking, Rowe, Sullivan)
- West Yorkshire
(Broadbent, Waddington, Holt, Cowling/Cooling)
- Northumberland & Durham
(Brown, Hedley, Halliday, Howe)
(McCalman, McVicar, Dewar)
These are my experiences, hopefully including something helpful which might save you some time or give you an idea about some new avenue to explore.
