It’s the weekend!! (UK, clocks go FORWARD an hour 😀)
Good afternoon everyone
I realised I have missed a few details from previous posts, so I thought I would start a new chat and carry on from here! 😊
I cannot believe it is the last weekend of March and this weekend we move the clocks forward an hour! I know our family life has been very turbulent which has probably caused time to speed up!
I am looking forward to the extra hours of daylight though! 😀
Michele , Ali I missed some of your posts, I’m sorry I didn’t respond.
Michele, I’m sorry weren’t able to attend the funeral in person in the end, but as we get released from lockdown hopefully you’ll be able to visit soon. I loved reading your story of the Martello towers esp near Dymchurch. We used to visit that part of Kent often when I was a child, I loved it there! I am hoping to visit that area and parts of Norfolk in my family tree searches.
My family in Canada live in Quebec, my father used to visit them often as his sister lives there also. It really has been such a joy to find them again and get to know my cousins. We get in really well too! I would love to visit with them one day.
In the last two years I have also made contact with another cousin here in the UK who I hadn’t seen since I was 12! We get on really well and speak often. During lockdown we have had several facetimes and evenings together. It is such a shame we spent so many years not being in touch.
Ali your step daughters project and film sounds fascinating, how fantastic for her to be able to research Peter’s side of the family. And even more exciting she has made contact with some relatives! I am really excited for her,it is such a thrill when you find someone or find a link and it opens doors once closed.
This last week we had the UK census to do, I have been really excited about doing it. I applied for a paper one do I could take a copy and keep it in my family tree stuff. Then in the future when one of our great, great, great grandchildren are looking up family tree they wouldn’t have to wait 100 years for information to be released. Haha! ( now that’s thinking ahead! 😂😂)
In the end I completed it online but screenshot all the pages. The paper one arrived today, I might fill it in to keep here, don’t need to return it now.
When do France do their censuses? And Australia Margy?
I have just had some really good news just now, it’s made my day! Tell you later though! 😀
Hope everyone is having a good day, chat soon.
Love Lou xx
