I have the family history bug for researching both my own family history and that of friends. If your interest is in families of the Fylde in Lancashire, this site is for you, with many photographs to enhance interest. I'll also be looking at my Scottish Donaldson connections, hints and tips, and stories that appeal. So read on, or even better, sign up as a follower. Do get in touch - I would love to hear from others who share my enthusiasm for family history fun.
I was lucky enough to inherit a large collection of photographs of my mother's Danson family and these have formed the basis of many a blog.
Some of my favourites are featured here, beginning with three photographs of my great grandmother Maria Danson, nee Rawcliffe.
The only photograph I have of my great grandfather James Danson sitting merrily in the stocks at Poulton-le-Fylde.
My grandmother Alice Danson, nee English with her children Edith, Kathleen (my mother), Harry and baby Billie, c.1916
My aunt Edith and my mother Kathlee Danson are the little girls at the front of this parade c.1912.
The wedding of my great aunt Jennie, 1929.
St. Chad's Church, Poulton-le-Fylde, where Dansons were
baptised, married and buried.
