Since this Blog was announced via the Wedgwood-L mailing list (visit the main page to join – http://www.wedgwood.org.uk), there has been a pleasing flurry of activity. A number of new initiatives will be rolled out over the coming months, your comments and input are always most welcome:
- A "Would like to make contact with…." section on the site would provide contact particulars and details of member's genealogical/family history interests, for instance, their desire to make contact with Cumberland Wedgwood descendants etc.
- The Wedgwood Pedigrees (1925) has been almost completely transcribed into the GEDCOM available for download. However there were some off-shoots, some with twentieth century representatives, that were not included at the time. I now intend to remedy this, indeed the fact that many parish registers unavailable to our kinsmen in the 1920s are now available, it might be possible to affix these twigs on to better documented branches. Watch this space.
It is far too nice a day to be in front of a computer, so having committed myself to the above, I will retire. To be honest, the evening that my wife and I spent at the http://www.puddingclub.com/ last night, to celebrate our fourth wedding anniversary, has left me somewhat lethargic!
