The Family Connections Blog is one year old today and I thought it might be a good time to review some of the years postings.
Between 1898 and 1942 Herbert Golledge recorded the events which occurred around the villages of Shoscombe and Single Hill in the parish of Wellow, Somerset, England. This transcript is the most read post, being consulted by someone on a daily basis.
Not far behind Herbert Golledge’s Notebook is my own original work about the Transatlatic crossings of the descendants of John & Grace Swift and other residents of the Somerset hamlets of Single Hill and Shoscombe.
Of the family biographical sketches that drew the most readers was that of the american womans rights campaigner, Harriot Eaton Stanton Blatch, who was married to William Blatch, my 7th cousin three times removed.
One of the main reasons for this blog is to make contact with other researchers and uncover new information about an ancestor. The comments section of this article certainly achieved that aim. The original article is now a reference for the on-line encyclopedia, Wikipedia,
Here’s hoping that the next twelve months brings more.
