Sussex / Rootschat sponsored site
« on: Wednesday 15 January 14 14:30 GMT (UK)  »
WOW

Last night my Rootschat sponsored site passed 3/4 of a million hits since it was set up back in August 2004

www.rootschat.com/history/hastings

As the site has become a little bit tired/dated it has been re-designed and updated by our own Trystan, no less.

Looking forward to seeing the new site soon

Hi Pinkanne

First of all welcome to Rootschat and especially the Sussex Boards.

You are going back to messages some 6 years old, can you be a bit more precise and tell us what it is that you are actually looking for.  Its a bit of a waste telling you what you already have.

Sussex / Sussex Rootschatters Meet
« on: Sunday 29 September 13 23:34 BST (UK)  »
Hi All

It has been suggested to me by several rootschatters that its about time we had another meet, possibly in Mid Sussex somewhere.

I think that the new East Sussex Record Office called "THE KEEP" in Lewes (near the new Brighton Football Stadium) which is due to open sometime in November would be a suitable place, plus anyone who has Sussex Ancestors could do some research.  Take a look on Google to see what The Keep offers   www.eastsussex.gov.uk/leisureandtourism/localandfamilyhistory/esro/thekeep/default.htm
The suggested date is after Christmas when things have settled down a bit

What do you Think?

Hi Roy
Nice to hear from you again

When was you thinking of clearing the area around that tombstone - I know its sometime before Saturday, but can you give a more precise time and I will see if I can join you - two pairs of hands work quicker than one.  No sure about the Saturday service, but would like to be there.

Hi

 .....the enumerator listed East Hill Passage at the beginning of the book but not in the actual records is a mystery unless of course he'd sampled the wares at the various beer establishments.   ::)

Well, there was one on the corner of All Saints Street and East Hill Passage called "The Moon"

hi

Have just checked the 1881 street directory again and in particular East Hill Passage which consists of Floral Cottages (3) Ginners Cottages (4) East Hill Passage (9) & New Cottages (3) = 19 houses in total.
At No 2 East Hill Passage is Mrs White (could Zebulon who would have been approaching 100 be deceased) - could be widow or daughter in law?

No nearer are we ;)

Hi again

you wrote

It would be interesting to know what the passage was called in the 1851 census but I can't think of a way of finding that out.

Sorry, but just checked and it was 'East Hill Passage'
