my new mailing list and board

Brycgstow : Bristol and district life
for genealogy and help with family and local history in Bristol and district.

When Newport Monmouthshire professional genealogist Mike John took his sites off line for a while,
I made MONFH2 tokeep his group together

That had become moribund and I have transformed it into Brycgstow : Bristol and district life

Brycgstow or Brycgstowe (Old English): - Brycg=bridge; Stowe=Assembly place- the assembly place by the bridge: mentioned in the Domesday Book (1086) as ‘Bristou’, later written as ‘Bristow’
