Braidwood Tree Updated

William Salthouse married Janet Braidwood in 1871 at Liverpool. The Braidwood tree is very significant for this branch of the Salthouses, I seem to remember mum saying that the red hair was a Braidwood trait – and also that her grandmother, Janet – always pronounced as Jennett – seemed to be very stern and no-nonsense but also a very likeable person. I’ve updated the tree tonight, but this is a tree that needs to be filled out with detail, much of which I already have, it’s on the ‘to do’ list.


Salthouse family update

Another linear tree written up and colour coded by generation. Some of the stories are missing at the moment because they need to be updated and expanded, but the tree is as complete as I know it to be.


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).

Chapels of Bwlchgwyn

This morning’s ambition was to finish off Gwenda’s pages, so that’s done, and the school page, then I started on the Chapels of Bwlchgwyn. The page has been updated with a few more memories and anecdotes, and I notice quite a few quotes from Gwenda. If anyone feels safe enough to brave the traffic between Bethesda and High View, I would love some pictures of the Old Chapel and also of any building remains on the opposite side of the road by High View. Please, pretty please?


Bwlchgwyn School

This page has had a major update including a change of name to Bwlchgwyn School (Hilary) to avoid confusion with Gwenda’s page which ends with (Gwenda).

I’ve added a couple more memories of my own to the page, included some quotes from Gwenda (though I might move them later) and will add some memories of dad’s stories soon.
