India Families resource

If you have ancestors who spent time in India for any reason, you may like to look at for any family events that may be recorded in the India Office Records. This index so far covers about 10% of their biographical sources.

Clive finally solved a long-standing question mark by finding our George POLLARD's first marriage there in 1819 whilst George was serving with the 14th Foot Regiment. Hurrah! But when did wife Sophia die?

We're also now wondering if the Andrew Pollard listed there as also serving with the 14th Foot when he and his wife died in 1819 might actually be George's older brother. One question mark is replaced with more, par for the course with genealogical research!

If you think you have found any more Wing-born people in that database (sadly they don't list birthplaces so I can't run a global search looking for any) please let me know.

Solved the niggling feeling

The OFHS journal and renewal form arrived in the mail a couple of days ago - so niggling feeling is now solved!

Niggling feeling

I had a pile of things to do that I didn't get around to doing before the holidays. I have a niggling feeling that one of those was the Oxfordshire Family History Society renewal which certainly should be due now, but I have no idea if they mentioned it in the December journal (assuming they have even sent the December journal yet), or if they sent a separate notification by mail or email, or if I imagined receiving a notification, or if I am just losing my mind! I also have a niggling feeling I had the exact same problem with the OFHS renewal last year.....

Any thoughts? I'd like to think I'm too young to be losing my mind, so I think I'll blame the heat.

Back in business

I have now been able to successfully restore the Wing One Place Study website back to its December status. If you notice any problems, please email me to let me know.

After all the IT glitches of the last couple of weeks I don't think I have the energy for a January update, so stay tuned at the beginning of February.

Lastly, if you haven't already done so you may like to bookmark this blog separately, as if there are problems with the main site I can let you know via this one. And you won't be able to reach this blog if you are depending on the link from the front page on the main site to get here!

Good news, bad news

The good news is my broadband has been fixed, so I can now see the outside world again - hello world!

The bad news is there are still some glitches that my website hosting company needs to iron out before I can fix up the website, so keep your fingers crossed. Email seems to be working properly though.

In my offline time, I've been harvesting courgettes and wondering exactly what to do with them, made mint jelly, pesto, some marinade, and lime cordial. Oh, and gave the pantry its annual spring clean!

We have arrived home to discover our internet connection is on the blink, so it may be several days until I can get access to get the website fully fixed up. In light of this, there probably won't be any new material for January.

Website status

Well, the good news is the website is back. The bad news is the home page is all the way back to September rather than December, so the updates for the last three months are missing, and several older pages are also missing or back to very old versions. I won't be able to fix this up until Sunday.

I also suspect any email sent to me has gone MIA, but I won't know that for sure until Sunday either, so please hold off on emailing or re-emailing me.

Happy New Year everyone!
