Geoffs Genealogy Update 4 October 2014

Saturday October 4th, 2014 | Geoff

What a wonderful month September was in the UK. Beautiful weather throughout the month, and virtually no rain! Jan and I had a great night at the BBC Last Night of the Proms in the Park at Singleton Park, Swansea three weeks ago, when we saw our favourite singer perform….

Geoffs Genealogy Update 1 September 2014

Sunday August 31st, 2014 | Geoff

For the first time in ages I did not write a blog entry in August, as (unusually for me!) I really did not have anything to write about. I am fortunate enough to have been away on holiday several times over the summer, so have not had time to fit…

Geoffs Genealogy Update 5 July 2014

Sunday July 6th, 2014 | Geoff

In the available time during the past month I have focussed my research on my Culshaw and Hewitt families. I had not updated my records to include the material I found when we visited Preston last September, so I rectified that oversight by updating my Culshaws. When we next upload…

Geoffs Genealogy Update 12 June 2014

Thursday June 12th, 2014 | Geoff

I have ben rather lax in monitoring the links on the Links page of Geoffs Genealogy, but  noticed recently that a number of these links have become obsolete. Over the past couple of days, therefore, I have reviewed this page, deleting obsolete information, updating where necessary, and adding one or…

Geoffs Genealogy Update 4 June 2014

Wednesday June 4th, 2014 | Geoff

This month I have been continuing my ongoing work, updating my records with information that I had not previously got around to dealing with. My problem always is that I’m such an avid collector of information that many of my finds don’t get added to my records, so I’m working…

Geoffs Genealogy Update 6 May 2014

Tuesday May 6th, 2014 | Geoff

This has been a fairly quiet month, so far as new research is concerned. I have been continuing my work of recent months, trying to deal with my backlog of finds that I have put to one side in the past and never previously returned to. I’m afraid that this…

Geoffs Genealogy Update 5 April 2014

Saturday April 5th, 2014 | Geoff

You may recall that in my post of 4th February I rambled on about our Jacobson research, and in particular whether I can justifiably add the Gosport / London Budd / Jacobson twig to the Bankes Pedigree. After chatting to one or two other people about this, and giving it…

Geoffs Genealogy Update 6 March 2014

Thursday March 6th, 2014 | Geoff

During March the main thought in my mind has been hollidays. Not only have I booked a couple of holiday breaks for the next few months, in East Anglia and in County Durham, but most of my treeing time has been spent updating my Holliday family history files. The Hollidays…

Geoffs Genealogy Update 04 February 2014

Tuesday February 4th, 2014 | Geoff

Quite often the results of our research into our forebears do not result in absolute certainty. We uncover information that seems to point towards a certain conclusion, but does not give us 100% certainty. Over the years I have found many pieces of research that have resulted in this sort…

Geoffs Genealogy Update 07 January 2014

Tuesday January 7th, 2014 | Geoff

The Christmas and New Year period is a busy time for all of us, but in spite of this I still managed to squeeze in a bit of treeing this month, with some very satisfying results. My grandmother was Alice Louisa (Holliday) Smith (1891-1982). She was a Londoner, and a…
