Cornish Family History: Treasures of Penwith

I’m not long back from a family holiday in Newlyn, near Lands End in Cornwall, England.

During the holiday I did the holiday stuff like a family barbecue, meeting for meals, enjoying a day out at Land’s End and just spending a lot of time with my mum. However I also visited a cluster of ancestors I’ve spent the last few months getting to know.

This is my experience of the great resources and people that I came across that week……….

Please check my full blog post here on the Worldwide Genealogy Collaboration site! Thanks 🙂

I thought I’d try a new type of blog post this time, rather than my previous posts which have been focusing on specific people.  Hope you like it!

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.”

At the end of 2014 I signed up to do half a dozen posts across 2015 as part of the Worldwide Genealogy Collaboration.  My first post has just gone online today and it’s available here:

Walter Hindmarsh – using enlightened Scottish records for an Englishman
