family trees

My hearty congratulations to Gerry Green, our webmaster,  and to Mary Rix, our records keeper. I have been using the family trees recently loaded onto the society database and accessable from the website. They are marvellous and most easy to use. I started by searching for people I already knew about and following the trees up and down so I could easily check I was doing everything correctly. This all gave the correct results so I ventured further.

Wells-next-the-sea, a Norfolk port in busier times

You may well have already seen the photograph of Wells in 1933 in the Times newspaper last week (Thursday January 8 2009 - page 63). It was originally published in the Times on 8 November 1933 and shows the quayside at Wells-next-the-sea when sugarbeet still left the quay for Yorkshire. If you have not seen it already try and look at a copy of the Times in your local library.
