Newsletter December 2014

During August, I visited the Tower of London while they were still in the process of installing the Remembrance installation of poppies.  It was a very moving experience - which really brought home to all the onlookers the sheer scale of the loss of life during World War I.


I have also recently undertaken a course with Pharos Tutors about tracing Military Ancestors, which provided me with some new sources to research our Adamthwaite ancestors who lived and died during this terrible conflict.

I am planning to update the list of known Adamthwaites who served during both World Wars and in earlier periods but I would also like to take the opportunity to document any of YOUR stories about your own Adamthwaites experiences during World War One as part of the Guild of One-name Studies Centenary commemorations in association with the Imperial War Museum - to ensure their memory is recorded for future generations.

First of all, take a look at our list of known Adamthwaites on the Adamthwaites in Uniform page of the Miscellany Section - can you provide any additional details or photos about any of these men or women?  More importantly, can you tell me about anyone who is missing from the lists?


Then, if you have a story about a member of your own Adamthwaite line's experiences during World War One, would you be prepared to write a short piece (a photo would be a bonus) so that I can add it to the following website: ?

Please contact me if you can help.

World War One Centenary

Lost Cousins

Every fortnight, I receive an email link to the latest edition of the 'Lost Cousins' Newsletter.  It always contains some new piece of information or link to a website with another source of records, and is often the very first place I hear about new developments.  Here is a link to the latest edition.


I also strongly recommend that you consider joining Lost Cousins yourself - not only will you receive an email to notify you whenever there is a new Newsletter available,  it is a great way of locating new cousins who are interested in family history and may be able to help your research!  The site uses a unique strategy to link you to others who share the same ancestors.


Look at this Information page to find out how it works.

Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year!!

We've got all the family coming here from Christmas this year, so I'm making sure that Santa can find us!


I wish you all a wonderful sparkly Christmas ...


with best wishes,
