C is for Confirmation, Cousins, Childhood, Charabancs and Cheques

Having just finished a quick sprint through one A-Z challenge from Ros at http://genwestuk.blogspot.com/, I could not resist a further one from Aona at Genealogy & History News with her Family History through the Alphabet Challenge at

Enjoy reading it!

St. Chad's, Poulton-le-Fyle Lancashire where my
Danson family were batpised, married and buried

C is for: Certificates, Censuses and Church Records - the core of all family history activity, but here are my slightly different thoughts on the challenge.

Discovering distant Cousins through the Internet, adding to the knowledge of my extended family and providing a great source of further blogging stories and photographs.

Finding out about our ancestors is so much more than names and dates and takes us down many different avenues of social history.

What was Childhood like?
An unidentified photograph in the collection of my great autn Jennie Danson.

What milestones marked their lives? Christening, Confirmation and Career.

How did people conduct business?  Cheques
A beautiful piece of ephemera that was survived from the buisness of my third cousin's Oldham ancestors.

How did people dress? Costume.

How did our ancestors get around?  Charabanc
