The Library

The Group facebook page contains a library of all researched individuals (see files section on facebook).

The latest entry is Henry Wileman, it’s a 30 page a document and well worth a read as it tells the story of one  our most influential  ancestors.

If there is an ancestor on our tree  that you feel has an interesting story to tell please let us know and we'll see what we can discover.

 Introduction of facebook Group

Members will now be able access all researched stories, exchange photos and videos, and discuss new material via the facebook group. We hope to extend this group significantly as more relatives become increasingly aware of the scope of this project.

We are aware that a number of our current membership are not familiar with facebook. So for the interim we'll keep some of the key documentation available via the existing Discussion Group. In the longer term we'll be looking to close the Discussion Group as we are finding the facebook approach better meets our needs for efficiency and inclusivity. For those who haven't tried accessing the facebook group before and need some guidance contact the administrator.

Introduction of Instagram ....#wbrq02

Instagram is being used to capture those special images that are the moments that have shaped  our personal history as well as taking a look at the changing fashions in clothes, cars, interiors etc. Where possible we're looking for good quality images

Also the presence on instagram helps us widen the awareness of our group and associated  website.



Instagram is now live on the site and be accessed through the activity button opposite or as a link shown  in the left hand column of the family section. 

#wbrq02 has also been established

 Click  on the  tabs of the 4 families in the menu to find some interesting tables on where the surnames can be found in the UK &I . This is more meaningful for the three smaller  less well known surnames. 

The graphic below illustrates  the problem researching the larger Baker family as we go further back in time,  There are simply too many  places where Bakers are established. This mean we have little idea of  where the family first settled or any obvious migration paths.
