Tom Wedgwood writes to Staffordshire Sentinel Re: Wedgwood Museum: "Don't thank the old management".
Saturday, 27 June 2009
The "Wedgwood Family Worldwide" site was set up back in 1996- hosted free by Geocities. In 1999 Yahoo, who took Geocities over some years ago announced that they would be closing down this facility. A new home had to be found. I have to admit at this point that hasty action on my part seems to have led to the loss of some of the old content as well. Much of it – Biographies etc – will be migrated to the new site at http://www.familyhistorian.info in due course. The Wedgwood Genealogical charts will not be carried over since they have in the most part been superseded by Philip Richards' comprehensive database which is now hosted here: http://www.familyhistorian.info/exciting.
Keep an eye on this blog for news of future developments.

Sent to me by Mrs Alison Wedgwood:
"Calling all descendants of Darwin and Wedgwood and friends of Staffordshire Dr Alan Wedgwood (head of the ["Etruria"] branch of the Wedgwood family) has sponsored this play for one showing only at the Wedgwood Museum on 14th June, all about Emma Wedgwood and Charles Darwin and based exactly on their letters. He's saw it a few months ago and thought it was brilliant."
“BETTER THAN A DOG” : The relationship of CHARLES and EMMA DARWIN (both grand-children of Josiah Wedgwood) dramatically revealed through their letters and journals.
Triumph and tragedy, humour and heartache all play their part in this extraordinary love story, which reveals the very private life of the very famous scientist and his sociable, devout wife

“a totally different view of Darwin as loving father and adoring husband, with a great sense of humour” – Shrewsbury Chronicle.
