The following sites I maintain, hope you enjoy browsing through them
David Watkins Family History
Starts off in England at the village of Ruardean, which is situated in the Royal Forest of Dean, Gloucestershire, close to the Welsh border.
Other areas which my ancestors have sent me searching are Manchester, which is the city where I was born. Then further north to Kendal in the picturesque Lake District. If that wasn't far enough, I am back down south to Dorset and Somerset and then over to Wales the land of song, in Aberavon and Peterstone.
Forest of Dean Family History
An ancient royal forest of oaks, ashes, birches, and ferns in the western part of Gloucestershire, south-central England, occupying an area of 204 square miles in the western part of the county. It is bordered on the southeast by the broad estuary of the River Severn and on the southwest by the River Wye, which (for the most part) forms the border with Wales.
Gordon Yates Wildlife Photographer
Gordon is best known for his wildlife films and in the last thirty years he has produced thirty films on birds ranging from his local Pennines, to his beloved island of Islay in Scotland, Iceland and more recently Greenland and Spitzbergen. It was while in Spitzbergen in 1997, camping in search of the Ivory Gull, that he had a life and death encounter with a Polar Bear.
Sydney Benevolent Asylum - Index to Admissions and Discharges
The records of the Asylum can be the answer to many research problems and, with that in mind, between 1995 and 2007, an index of the inmates of the Asylum was compiled from records held at the Sydney Mitchell Library. The resulting database contains over 78,000 records. As far as has been possible, it is a listing of all the inmates of the Asylum between 1857 and 1900.
