Who ARE These People?

Back in April I posted that I had (finally) sent my book to print.  I had done all that I could looking at it on the computer screen.  I needed a hard copy.  I needed to feel paper between my fingers.  I needed to be able to flick back and forth between the pages.  The copy came VERY quickly and it’s taken me this long, with a vacation and double pneumonia in between, to finalize it … until the next batch of typos is rounded up ;(

It is a book of family stories, so not a huge reading audience but if you want to just take a free peak at the pages you can do so here.   I published it through Blurb and I bought the soft cover edition, which I’m quite happy with.

And, who knows who may read this, perhaps some of you share some history with me  – the family lines in the book are listed below.  There is some fairly extensive genealogy included – births, deaths, marriages yada yada for genealogy junkies.

Annis,  Bagley,  Bailey,  Beatty,  Douglass,  Grafton,  Henderson,  Hutche(s)on,  Laird,  Malcolm,  Pentecost,  Sydney Smith

It took me a long time – started writing the stories in 2005 without idea of what I was going to do with them. As I wrote, it grew and voila. There are programs that, I hear, can make books from blogs – maybe you are closer than you think. And thank you for the compliment. 🙂

      1. Of course, Starcross is 7 miles away, just past Powderham. Totnes is one of my favourite places anywhere and I have several posts about it – particularly Dartington – did you go there as well? Kilburn I don’t know, it’s in London isn’t it?

        1. Well now you had me check, Gilly – it is Kilburn, Middlesex so, yes, I guess it is part of greater London now although I’m sure it wasn’t then back in 1825 when my 2x great grandmother was born. We didn’t visit Totnes – sounds like we should have …

          1. I love it there, it’s a very ‘alternative’ town! When you have time look in my tag cloud for both Totnes and Dartington, there’s several posts. Better still google it!

  2. I looked through your book, and it’s very, very impressive. It’s such a great accomplishment when someone writes a little family history down, but you’ve gone way beyond that! The stories, the photos, everything – wow. Congratulations!
