The Common Room / What Makes You Feel Connected?
« on: Friday 01 October 21 13:36 BST (UK)  »
This question has been nagging at me for a while now, 'what makes us feel connected'? The answer will be different for all of us, is it a sense of finding out who you are by connecting with your ancestors? Is it about joining a wider community and sharing experiences and stories, what makes us strive for these connections, do we want to be part of something bigger?

Love to hear your thoughts.

« on: Friday 30 July 21 10:06 BST (UK)  »
For those that followed my research into the Old Palace School Bombing you will know that I have been researching this incident a long time. Itís still today the largest ever loss of life for the Fire Brigade. 34 Firemen and Women lost their life here.

I have created a website to commemorate the lives of all 34 firefighters and over the coming months will be posting biographies on all the firefighters m.

The website is in its infancy but any support you can give will be greatly appreciated

Thank you

The Common Room / Family Heirlooms

As the story teller and family history researcher in my family, over the years I have been gifted many precious family items, some with a story to tell and others I think people were clearing out their lofts and decided I was a worthy cause!

One item however stands out from all the rest and thatís Great Uncle Johnís Military ĎButton Stickí.

I wonder if anyone else has some precious items in their collections?
