Welcome to my family history blog

I’ve been researching my family history for several years and the aim of this blog is to share some of the things I’ve discovered.  When I started researching, I wasn’t sure how interesting my ancestors might turn out to be, but one of the things I’ve learned is that every family has interesting people and events in its past, and most also have a few surprises.

Click on ‘Family Stories’ in the menu to see what I’ve posted so far. Most recent posts will be at the top, scroll down for older ones. Please feel free to leave a comment. If you click on ‘follow’ you will be alerted about new stories when they are added to the blog.

Mary Ann Carvey and family

Four generations: My great-great-grandmother Mary Ann Allsworth (nee Carvey) with some of her children, grandchildren, and great grandchildren in 1931. My Shayler grandparents are standing at the back, looking very young!
