> General Information > About Us






  Who are we ?
  Suzanne and Richard Brown, a retired couple. Suzanne is the keen genealogist and Richard likes playing with computers. Richard freely admits to not knowing much about genealogy and Suzanne likes to keep her knowledge of computers to the minimum necessary to get by. In all a handy combination for a site like this! So that you can put faces to names, the photo below was taken on our ruby anniversary on a recent Mediterranean cruise. When we are not working on the website, Suzanne enjoys line dancing and Richard is a keen modern jive (Ceroc) enthusiast.
  What was the motivation for developing the site ?

When he retired, Richard was keen to try his hand at developing a web site that would be of genuine use to those visiting it. One of Richard's bugbears (he's a bit of a Victor Meldrew at times!) was the poor navigation on too many web sites and he was keen to see if he could develop a site that was easy to navigate around. For her part, Suzanne regretted that when she started off tracing her family history she was unaware of all the information available to her and where and how to access it. She wasted a lot of time and effort as a consequence.

  What will be the motivation for maintaining the site in the future?
  Since its introduction, the numbers visiting this site has steadily grown. Providing the current interest in the site is sustained we will make every effort to keep it up to date and to extend it.
  What host server do we use?
  This site is hosted on 1& which we find ideally suited to the purpose. The charges are reasonable (less than the cost of a single cigarette a day which we can easily bear since neither of us smokes!), the service is usually very reliable and we particularly like the comprehensive statistics on site usage that comes as standard.
