New Forest Gypsy photos - DOE, COOPER, HUGHES, SHERRAD etc
« on: Thursday 09 July 09 15:06 BST (UK) »
I've just been given a link for a new site about New Forest Gypsies:

www.newforestromanygypsytraveller.co.uk

The site includes over a 100 old photos for families that include Doe, Hughes, Cooper, James and Sherrad and so on. So well worth a look if you're researching these names in Hampshire.  :)

Best wishes

Hi Sharon,

What a wonderful site, I've been looking at the photo's and they give a taste of what their lives were like.

Did you notice all the children were smiling, I didn't realize I was smiling too until my husband asked what was so funny.

I would love to find a site like this about the families from Scotland and the North of England where my lot travelled, I've posted before to ask if anyone has any photo's, but no luck so far, but in the mean time I will enjoy this site.

Many thanks for the link.

Yours Jane
