NEWS - 26th Feb 2020

We are always interested in new volunteers to help us with our activities: currently we particularly need one or more people who have an interest in computing and/or audiovisuals to help with the running of the site and possibly ultimately take over the webmaster duties from Bob Stephen (i.e. me!). Drop me an email or give me a ring (via Contact Us link here). Training will be provided for all activities as required.

NB ... as from 1st March 2020 the site will only be checked by us once a month and then only to publish comments and very simple articles. Bob Stephen has recently resigned as Webmaster, after nearly 10 years in the job, but is offering this minimum service until there is a new Webmaster. He, regretfully, can no longer accept complex articles or printed material etc for inclusion on the site. For those interested in being Webmaster here is a link to a job description.


Recent newsflash material:

Are you looking at the site from a pad or phone? Then you will need to click on a small plain icon at the right top of the header to get access to our Login and Message Boards and Contact Us. If you just want to get at the General Message Board then it'll be easiest for you just to click hereLooking at articles and posting comments to them should be OK on any device. However, if you want to add articles to the site it's probably best that you use a laptop or desktop.

Sara Jess wonders if anyone knows something about "Moats and Springs Farm House" off the Stambridge Road. Have a look at our General Message Board. Brian Pettitt has dropped a recent response here.

Very interesting new article from Sam Byford. He would welcome any comments or new material on Ellen or the families involved. Have a look here. Also have a look on our general message board for the recent query from Sam about "New England Lane".

Laura would be interested in any information about a Shopland farm long since gone, please have a look here. She is involved with a fortheloveofhistory blog which has an Essex section that is well worth a look. (The query has in fact now been sorted out by Laura herself but the blog is interesting, so do still have a look).

Several requests for family information have appeared on our General Message Board. Have a look here.

Gemma Jones would like information about the Wilks and Marven families - see here on the forum pages. Please post a response on the page if you have any leads.

Len Bickford, Brian Pettitt and John Emberson have posted new material and there have been a few comments on articles. Best way to get an overview is to use the following links to NewPages and NewComments (which are also to be found in the top bar and hereunder).
