Re: Coming Home

Oh thank you so much for telling us that.  I missed it, of course!  Well, him indoors holds the control (box/remote).  Perhaps I should ease him out somewhere so that I can watch it?  Or buy him a good book?  he he he

I turn off my pc in the evenings and give my hubby some company.  Having said that, for a few hours every day I research our ancestral tree and I come up with new snippets of information and get in touch with more and more distant relatives.  It is great fun whether you actively engage in research or watch others on TV.

Enjoy!  Ann

Re: Coming Home

Hello Ann, lovely to see you.

Sorry you missed it, the programme was quite enjoyable, Michael Sheen found that his great grandmother was a lion tamer with the circus!  Maybe it will be shown on I-player on the pc and you could watch it on there.

You are doing so well with your research.  I had a little break but back into it again now and recently found a family history society for Yardley Gobion where one of my reles was born and I got chatting with them and they have given me some information about my lady and their website is lovely, so easy to follow, but alas, not well used.

Will be in touch for a natter -

 

love janexx

Re: Coming Home

Hi Janet, It is wonderful when you come across a distant rele and learn more about the family.  I too have found many a website for the area useful.  I recently came across a rele who told me that our family owned a farm in White Hart Lane, Tottenham.  It is now a housing estate and the football team named their ground White Hart Lane although it was just across the road further up!  I attach a picture of the farm, called Rectory Farm but known as Thompson's farm.

My great grand aunt, sister of my great granny grew up in a traveller's van but she married out of the gypsy clan.  She married a widower publican and a distant rele I met on the www sent me a picture of the pub they owned.  Oops cannot find it right now.

Another rele I met told me that my 2nd great grand aunt married a black negro and they had a pub too and a market garden.  That branch of the family are still in market gardening and all white skinned now.  I have a lovely picture of their pub now too. (middle snap)

I have met some very friendly and helpful reles since I have researched, like you.
