Welcome to new followers!

Thank you to the new followers over the last few days, it’s very encouraging, especially as my site is still a work in progress. I’m always happy to get in touch with anyone who can connect with any of the families or places or with 62 Sqdn RAF

Old Newspapers

I don’t have many ancestral connections with Europe, but when I came across the European Library I knew it was something worth recording, so I’ve added a link to it on my Links page.

The Links Page

The Links page is very much a list for me, so that I can revisit sites and sources of information easily. At the top of the page there is a list, a framework, and this corresponds with the order of the links further down the page. Not all links are included yet, I add them as I go.

Joynt (Jane) Updated

Jane Joynt, who married Henry Joynt, was the mother of Margaret Joynt. Whilst much of Jane and Henry’s trees are identical, Jane did remarry after (presumably) Henry died and so her tree contains her ‘Pixton family’ children. There was close contact between Margaret Joynt and one of her Pixton half sisters so it’s good to see them all on the same lineage. William Pixton also married twice so has his own page even though he is only connected by marriage.

Baxendale Updated

A very short page, the Baxendales are only related to my family by marriage but still played an important part in the documents and pictures (such as they are) that I have. It’s a long time since I last looked at the family history but I seem to remember that Richard Baxendale who married Mary Braidwood was brought up his grandparents. A good story of changing times and improved prospects for children who were lucky enough to have a decent basic education and family who were in a position to help them.

Belton Tree Updated

This is the biggest tree and I can’t take much credit for it as the work was done by Gwynne and Thomas Belton in the days when a search was a search through real paper documents in London and in local archives. It’s a linear tree, colour coded for each generation. Yes there might be inconsistencies, so that will make it all the more interesting. A large work in progress.

The Ellery Family

I’ve trialled a new way of setting out the family tree and updated the shortened story of the Ellery family. It looks good on mobile phones as well as the laptop. I would love you to have a look and see what you think. I’ve tried to keep it simple but attractive (that also makes it easier to work with and therefore more likely to be kept up to date).
