Family life in the 1930’s: part one

Family life in the 1930’s: part one

I was on a long journey with my grandma last week, those journeys where conversations can lead from one thing to another quite quickly. On this particular journey Grandma responded to one of my comments with "we didn't have fridges when i was younger and we coped". It got me thinking about how life is so different now compared to 80 years ago, Grandma didn't have a fridge let alone an iPad - how would Noah and Isla feel about that?  VIEW the POST

I have never joined in with the Sticky Fingers fun "The Gallery" before, but after seeing SusanKMann's post on her descendents - I have been inspired. With all of the things going on in my family at the moment, celebrating them is essential and so here comes my dive into the archives: VIEW the POST

Noah’s family tree… Where I came from?

Noah’s family tree… Where I came from?

I thought it was important to have my family tree, so that when Noah and baby numero 2 grow up, they can see where they came from and from who! It all started about 5 years ago when my grandparents were discussing the fact they had family that they didnt know, my Grandad had 2 sisters which he lost contact with about 40 years ago and they were not sure what had happened to them. This gave me the motivation I needed to get going! After sitting down with grandma and grandad for a couple of hours and finding out the basic bits, I was able to get involved in websites and subscriptions, census' and certificates to track down the Bentley line for my Grandad.VIEW the POST
