Local & Family History

Whilst researching one's own family history, one finds all sorts of odd snippets that may be of interest to others. This page leads to some of these, and also includes links to other related sites. If you see anything here which links into your own family, please send an email to Alan Simpson since we may well have more details than are included here.
