I enjoy following the ancestral trail: the detective story element in hunting for information and corroborating it with evidence, (I do not like to be defeated), the satisfaction of finding key facts, and writing up the information in an interesting way that appeals to others. So do read on, or even better, sign up as a follower. I would love to hear from others who share my enthusiasm for family history.

"Lest We Forget" - English Memorials: Military Monday
Approaching the month of November is the time when we remember our ancestors who died in war. I thought I would post a series of images of war memorials, both in Britain and abroad - this week in England.
Remembered above on the war memorial at Poulton-le-Fylde, Lancashire are my two great uncles John Danson and George Danson who died in the First World War.
