Plagued by numerous unsolicited phone calls encouraging me to pay not to receive unsolicited phone calls. The response is – ‘as the only unsolicited calls I am receiving are from you, I think we can solve that more cheaply’. Did, I think, manage to track down my great great grandfather, John Hogg from Northumberland, in the 1851 census after 35 years of searching. A potential breakthrough on this line at last. He doesn’t help by his 3 census entries all giving different places of birth, slightly different birthdates and in one case, a different name! Oh well, it wouldn’t be fun if it was too easy.
Good news that my ‘Writing Up Your Family History’ day course for Friday 12th October already has 10 attendees and it has barely been advertised yet. Thinking of an additional date in case it is over subscribed.
I wonder if there are any Coffers, Clysters reviews in this month’s Family History magazines?
