Hello and welcome to my web site based here in this green and pleasant part of northwest England.

The site consists of a number of sections with information and links on various topics, mostly genealogy-related. However, there are also a few sections dealing with some of my other interests for when you need a break from the genealogical research!

Please make use of the search engine, which you will find just below, which is customised for this site.
