32 - Editorial

Those attending the Bunting Society's 2005 Gathering on October 22 will, we are sure, be enchanted with its new venue this year: the Derbyshire village of Tissington, some 4 miles north of Ashbourne just off the main road to Buxton. The meeting is being held in the village hall, itself a picturesque building on the edge of the expansive triangular village green.

31 - Editorial - Moving North!

Derbyshire and adjacent counties are a hotbed of Buntings! Society membership and other records and extensive family trees confirm that the number of people per square mile with a Bunting pedigree is as great in that part of the world as anywhere else in Britain.

In the centre of this issue of Gone A-ffunting is your invitation to the Bunting Society's 15th Anniversary Gathering in July next year. This promises to be a rewarding weekend for everyone, whether they are avidly - or just mildly - interested in family history.
Even if you groan inwardly at the thought of yet more family trees, parish registers, census returns etc, then please don't be deterred - there will be plenty for you too! The innovative 'What Buntings Do' display will, hopefully, get you thinking about the contributions you can make, and those dark winter evenings between now and next July could be the ideal time for preparations for the display.

26 - Editorial: At Last - The 1901 Census

At long last the 1901 census index is available on the internet! Since it arrived on-line, opening it up for regular use, I have endeavoured to find all the Bunting-related entries. That may sound a straightforward exercise, but it is surprising how some of the Buntings are indexed.
