Friday’s Faces From The Past

I kept in touch with my Great-Aunt Joy in Australia for many years via airmail. She also had penfriends in many different countries that she’d been corresponding with for many years. I’ve found quite a few photos of them in her albums so I thought I’d share a few via this blog. I have no… Continue reading Friday’s Faces From The Past

The Nottingham Jowetts continued….

  The three postal certificates I ordered have finally arrived for my Jowett ancestors that I'd found in Basford Cemetery, Nottingham.

Australia, Bucknall, Jowett, Nottingham lace, Thankful Thursday

Thankful Thursday

I'm very thankful for a large parcel that arrived one day last week. I've posted before about my Great Aunt Joy who emigrated to Australia - she gave me a Nottingham lace bedspread some years ago, which was designed by her Grandfather William Bucknall. Sadly Auntie Joy passed away in July last year at the… Continue reading Thankful Thursday
