I've started a blog!

This year I have boldly gone where I have never gone before. I have given radio and newspaper interviews, speeches and dressed up as an Elisabethan woman. Now I've been talked into doing a blog. Since I started I've had 9 views all together so don't think I'll set the world on fire. Why did I start all this I ask myself. If you want to make my hits more than the guy who persuaded me to do it. I hope this will get you to it

Looks like a great job, DW.

If we ever find Fred I'll be temped to publish that story.

I came across one very interesting blog about one family in my tree - the NEWBERYs of Hampton Court.

Re: I've started a blog!

Its my intention to publish some sort of history eventually, but I need to go to Nottingham archives and Stafford and back to Bakewell to fill a few gaps yet.

I think I have the complete list of owners of Bishops House in the Blythe family but I'd like a little more evidence. Some wills have gone missing unfortunately, they are listed in the calendar but have been lost by Lichfield at some time. There are still some Chancery records I haven't looked at, though they are not always in good condition to read.

Re: I've started a blog!

Interesting. You are lucky so much stuff does exist for you to read.

I don't know when I'll get back to UK and be able to visit the places I need to fill some serious gaps in my tree.

Probably not related but I have Walker, Martin and Wickens in my tree too.

Re: I've started a blog!

Can just see it now ... Written by Duckweed

Seriously tho i hope you do publish it, you have done so much work that it would be a shame for it not to be.
Dont know if im going to be getting to Sheffield when im over there but if i do im going to go and have a little look at Bishop House.

Thank you, i will do that for sure. At this stage we will be there for about 4 weeks, im going to see if we can make that 6 weeks, 2 weeks extra isnt a lot of time but it will allow us to be able to fit a couple of more things in.
Just everytime i read a post on here about somewhere that seems interesting i want to visit it when im over there
