Research Interests

Current Research Topics

Currently I am ploughing my way through the 1911 census, stopping periodically to repsond to queries and follow up on any emails that I have received

I'm also in the process of cleaning up the sources references to make the method of referencing more consistent, to add missing and remove redundant citations (although this is quite boring so I get easily distracted!).

Finally I'm trying to get photographs and portraits of as many of the individuals as possible, this fits in with my overall plan of attack for my research: get as much information from living people as I can, find out as much as I can through census, brith marriage and death indexes and parish registers, I can then start to accumulate more personal details about each individual.
