and in a chat room onAOL

GCH GenTrek: Recently Megan Smolenyak Smolenyak ran a survey on Extreme Genealogy.
Grndmqus25: HI WB
Alummiisland: Hi, Bill
GCH GenTrek: Here are some of the responses:
GCH GenTrek: --- Made an eight-hour drive in the middle of a huge snowstorm in the nighttime to a state archives city because the trip was already planned and nothing could stop me!
GCH GenTrek: --- Flew to Iceland for a long weekend just to see the "old country."
GCH GenTrek: --- For me, it was to drive literally half way across the country, from Chicago to Baltimore, to meet a county archaeologist and see some of the items recovered from a dig on an ancestor's land.
GCH GenTrek: --- Gone off on a research trip alone for a week, which really irritated my boyfriend who thought I should be vacationing with him.
GCH GenTrek: --- Gone to Ireland and been elected clan chieftain.
Kashathree: lol
Alummiisland: Which clan, Dae?
GCH GenTrek: --- I spent a week in a tent in a campground (even cooked my meals over a campfire), spending my days searching all facilities available and my evenings perusing graveyards 'til they closed the gates.
GCH GenTrek: --- Flew to Wisconsin to help a third cousin I had met on the Internet clean up the old family cemetery of only a handful of grave sites on my great-great-grandfather's farm.
GCH GenTrek: --- Drove 700 miles in five days through all five New York City boroughs and the other counties in Long Island to meet living relatives.
GCH GenTrek: --- Moved to England from Texas.
GCH GenTrek: (personal fave)
GCH GenTrek: --- Traveled for six months in an RV visiting states, courthouses, graveyards, etc. and finding more than I ever expected. Such a thrill to see where they once lived!
GCH GenTrek: --- Took a trip to Budapest, hired a driver and translator, and visited country parishes researching family records.
GCH GenTrek: --- Hired a lobster boat to take us out to an island where ancestors had lived off the coast of Maine.
GCH GenTrek: --- Traveled from Australia to South Africa in the 1900s to meet descendants of my great-grandmother's brother who had "run away to join the circus," so the story ran, and had migrated to South Africa
GCH GenTrek: --- Spent time visiting cemeteries and other places to gather genealogical information while on my honeymoon.
GCH GenTrek: --- To live in the country (Finland) where my ancestors came from for six months.
SuAngGrame: Hummmmmmm
GCH GenTrek: --- Bought a 42-foot RV and a new jeep to travel the country in search of the past.
Kashathree: yeah, Mar
GCH GenTrek: --- Travel to the library in SLC. I am told Utah is a beautiful state, but in my numerous trips there, I've seen little but the inside of the library!
GCH GenTrek: --- Drove 400 miles to interview my mother's 100 year old cousin and drove back 400 miles the next day to attend the memorial service of my father's cousin.
SuAngGrame: Atrue genealogist
GCH GenTrek: --- Attended seven family reunions in five different states in a single year (to the consternation of my spouse).
GCH GenTrek: --- Taking my then 99-year-old grandfather back to a church homecoming in the town of his birth. My sisters, a cousin and niece went along.....
GCH GenTrek: We drove him through the whole area and tape-recorded his ...
GCH GenTrek: memories, photographed his birthplace and cemeteries, and mapped out the area according to his version of our family history. He just passed away last week at age 102, but his memories and stories will live on.

Tallis Topographical Dictionary

Tallis Topographical Dictionary: "The details and maps in this on-line gazetteer are extracted from the 19th century six-volume edition of Tallis's Topographical Dictionary of England and Wales, which I acquired in February 2002 from Hay Castle Bookshop of Hay-on-Wye, Breconshire. This monumental work was edited by E. L. Blanchard, and published in 1860 by L. Tallis of 21 Warwick Square, Paternoster Row, London. The volumes were bound by Bone & Son, of 17 Fleet Street, London and originally sold for 7/6 (seven shillings and sixpence) per volume."

A Gazetteer of Monmouthshire Wellsites

A Gazetteer of Monmouthshire Wellsites: "Llanover
Spout (capped) and horse trough (ST 3070 0907)
Apparently there are holy wells at Llanover but this well edifice, built in 1875, recalls the 'bee of Gwent', Lady Llanover. She became more Welsh than the Welsh; designing costumes of national dress that won an Eisteddfod award, steeping herself in national lore and leaving this extraordinarily romantic well structure complete with three Welsh inscriptions inviting all to drink but not to forget the bee of Gwent. One verse translates to;
�Water, O Lord, is the drink,
When you would allow us to refresh our tongues,
The Devil sent alcohol
To put an end to man and his wealth.�
The Gwent bee was a big teetotaller and managed to close all but one pub (the Goose and Cuckoo) in the vicinity. She is certainly well remembered for that! Her watery monument, fascinating as it is, is sadly marred by being immediately on A4042; but well worth a look. For more horse trough"

UK census boards mega FAQ

UK census boards
Lynne Kleine has compiled an excellent mega FAQ of UK census with excellent advice. It is hidden as Links & Announcements here
Rootsweb : Boards > Topics > Census > United Kingdom > General

"If you are requesting a census lookup, please post your message on the appropriate board. Each post should be limited to one year of the census and one family.

The Census>United Kingdom>General board is only for general queries and information about the United Kingdom census and is not for posts about specific years. All other messages, including queries about specific census years and lookup requests, will be moved to the most appropriate board.

Please post enough information so that others can help you: first name, surname, birth date and location, and in what county and town the person or family is expected to be found in the census. Many censuses are not indexed by surnames, so be sure to include an address. Whenever possible, include the family's details from another census."

Year Books are the law reports of medieval England. The earliest examples date from about 1268, and the last in the printed series are for the year 1535. The Year Books are our principal source materials for the development of legal doctrines, concepts, and methods from 1290 to 1535, a period during which the common law developed into recognizable form. About 20,000 individual reports or 'pleas' have been printed, and others remain in manuscript.

Welcome to Pontypool Museum

Welcome to Pontypool Museum: "In 1697, Major John Hanbury of Pontypool�s ironmaster family, developed a rolling mill for producing thin iron sheet and his Pontypool Works then proceeded to undertake the first commercial production of tinplate in Britain. By 1732, it is recorded that one of the Hanbury family employees, Thomas Allgood had invented a new way of japanning the tinplate. The manufactory was in a small cottage at Trosnant and employed only the Allgoods who kept the process a secret. In 1761, after a quarrel the family split up and some set up a rival factory in Usk, 10 miles distant."

Lettuce soup with pepper

lettuce soup pepper - Google Search

Whilst I was checking out all that techie stuff in the blog below (which is now of record)
I was cooking my newly invetend dish - well strictly speaking it was cooking in my ARGOS cheap pressure cooke, which looks like the classic Pestige from the1950ies. RICE with LETTUCE

Anyway being strapped for cash I went by bus (free on and oldies buspass Pensionistkort AKA mimre-kort

Well being unusually strapped for cash I went past the cabbage king (see my blog snaps: cabbage king) and while he had no big white cabbages at this time of year,
his helper was busy unloading the fresh green stuff from the market - Grøntorvet in Valby.

So he was selling 3 big iceberg lettuces for 10kr - left overs at the wholesaler - and therefore cheap and beginning to go brown here and there. Well being a 1940ies child with food rationing and all that in England - the concept of the Curate's Egg is not new to me.

It annoys me to throw away food so I invented this recipe to use up old lettuce:-

Hugh's rice with lettuce - for one portion and I am on a diet too.

first put the ingredients in the cooker
one third to one quarter cup of dry rice
cover with water to a depth of about 1/4 inch (6mm)

Trim the lettuces of all discoloured leaves, and parto of the stalk,
(If earthy or insects wash off first)
and chop in tiny pieces, or tear them as I did
one medium size onion peeled and chopped
two medium size carrots washed and chopped
half a Nor stock cube crumbled
four small cloves of garlic peeled,crushed and chopped
and sprinkle with as much white pepper as you dare to.

(substitute curry powder, paprika or any tasty herb or spice you like)
I forgot the bay leaves so I wil try those another time.

Cover and with the full weight bring up to pressure and turn it off at once.
(about 120 celsius at 2 atmospheres ?) allow to cool naturally - saves energy too - until an eatable temerature.

You could add soy sauce or a dab of butter at this point
when you serve it into a large (chinese soup?) bowl
of fresh chopped parsley.

The trick with cheap food is to vary the taste with the herbs and spices.

A great ships cook was seen to come on board with a small suitecase for a 6 month jounrey.

When he was asked where was the rest of his stuff, clothes and books, (dvd would be usual too today I suppose) he replied "I work 12 hours a day in whites washed and provided for me and the company purchases and freezes the best ingredients, but they know nothing about cooking, and so this is all I need, to stop the ships company mutinying over my food."
He opened the case and it was full of parcels of the finest herbs and spices.

The recipe Hugh's rice with lettuce turned out very well with the pepper dominating
I scraped the slight browned burned rice off the bottom of the pan because I like that too.
To accompany it i drarnk a half pint glass chilled TAPA wate with a slice of lemon ... which I ate as a desert. NOW for coffee.

must have been too slow turning the heaqt off, and TAP water?
yes in any civilised country it is just as good
or better, even safer, than the fancy spring or mineral water.

I buy one bottle of Evian, or whatever, and refill it from the kitchen tap for the whole summer (beats beer or cola for people on a diet).
Any good dietician will ask "What about protein?
OK one protein meal a day and lots of skimmed milk
aiming for about 80 to 120 gram daily for a full grown adult - more for pregant women and growing children.

fatty fish is cheap and healthy too.

I never buy butter or magerine, when cooking I use olive oil instead, and only eat butter as a luxury on bread or potatoes when out with friends.

Salt is a preservative which we have aquired a habitual taste for - get used to doing with out it because there is enough for our bodies use in our natural food.

ASGRA Website Introduction

Association of Scottish Genealogists and Records Agents,:
"The search for family history is a fascinating occupation and everyone who is interested should try to find what they can for themselves - but often through lack of time or distance from the archive centres, it may be necessary to seek help. A professional genealogist will have a wide knowledge of sources available for implementing a particular case.

This on-line resource contains information on the Association of Scottish Genealogists and Records Agents, sourcing family history, and most importantly a list of professional researchers with full contact details to arrange private commissions." Heritage & Culture - News - Scots abroad create a heritage of profits Heritage & Culture - News - Scots abroad create a heritage of profits: "Ancestral tourism... somehow manages to suggest a coachload of wandering ghosts, but the Scottish tourist trade is finding, much to its advantage, that those visitors embarked on tracing their Scottish roots will soon be going beyond the tartan tosh and the obvious tourist destinations, visiting those parts of Scotland normal holidaymakers don't reach. Research for the Scottish tourist board, VisitScotland, through its Ancestral Scotland family and clan history website (, revealed that in 2001 genealogy had been the motivation behind an estimated 260,000 tourist trips to Scotland - contributing �153 million to Scotland's economy. Family history buffs also stayed longer - 13.5 nights compared to an average 4.1 - and spent at least 10 per cent more than average tourists.
The research was commissioned by the Ancestral Tourism Steering Group - which involves VisitScotland along with other parties including the office of the General Registrar for Scotland, Scottish Enterprise, tour operators and heritage agencies - and also estimated that the number of 'ancestral tourists' could increase to between 300,000 and 800,000 trips annually - and its value could expand to between 5 and 13 per cent of annual tourism expenditure in Scotland.
With an estimated 50 million people of Scots descent around the world, VisitScotland and related concerns are clearly rubbing their hands in anticipation. "

Mary Jones and Thomas Jones of Raglan Monmouthshire Wales

Blanche Eveline Jones of Raglan Monmouthshire Wales

was my beloved granny.

So I am getting to work on her ancestorss - RootsWeb's WorldConnect Project: Jones of Raglan Monmouthshire Wales:
"Birth: 5 JUN 1874 in Raglan, Monmouthshire
Death: 5 JUL 1953 in "The Haven" Monmouth Road, Usk, Monmouthshire July 5 1953 "

I am still looking for descendants of her half brothers and sisters - BLISS JONES who grew up in London

A one-name study for JONES would be impossibly big, so this is limited to just one-place, the village of RAGLAN.

This is gedcom the first draft, and a work in progress not a final authority.

Please check all data against original sources.

IN these trees I am having fun with nicknames - so many John Jones - 22 so far that I am making up possibly AKA names based on occupation or location.

She drank up the family fortune - no not my granny, but her step-mother.

Any sightings of her siblings listed below will be very very welcome.

FREE 30 day trial at the moment - Genealogy and Family History Records
from my email:-
No one seems to have mentioned yet, that Ancestry are doing a FREE 30
day trial at the moment. You dial 0800 783 1319 and book it over the
phone. You simply say you saw one of their adverts and give your credit
card details, but if you ring and cancel before the 30 days are up they
don't take anything from it. If you don't ring in time they take a
years subscription. You get full access to all the service, including
the 1861 to 1901 censuses and I have found it very useful in the last
couple of weeks. You need to gather together all the searches you want
to do so you can blitz the site in the time available though!
