It has been almost 2 years since I added an update, so here is one.
Over the past 2 years I have been adding more and more details to the family history. In particular a whole set of free to access Irish BMD images have been made available which has transformed the Irish KILKIE connection.
I have also been adding census information, tracing our relatives lives in between their birth, marriage and death. As you probably know census takes place every 10 years and it is (to me at least) fascinating to see how people move around, change jobs... For example My Auntie Annie born and raised in Glasgow suddenly appears in her grandfather's house in Derry on the night of the census in 1911 aged 3 - no sign of any of her relatives who were all back in Glasgow. Similarly I find my wife's great grandmother up in Sunderland in a lace factory and then 10 years later she is living as a lodger in a house in Gravesend owned by her future husband (who was living as a lodger somewhere else).
You really should get involved in adding information to the site. You can do it yourself or send things to me to put up. In addition I am continuing to travel through spacetime and we will need a new Dr Who for the tardis sooner or later.
