What’s in a name?

June 15, 2006

There has been a lot of interest growing over the last few years in the topic of family history and genealogy. This growing interest can be seen in the popularity of TV programmes like Who do you think you are? This programme has shown just how fascinating genealogy really is and the stories that go with it. I remember vividly, watching the episode on Stephen Fry as he found out about Jewish relatives from Slovakia and the fate that became them in the second world war. Stories like these made compelling television but also showed the real interest on the parts of the family members.

Our interest in family history stems from our religious beliefs and that those who have passed before us are not gone and forever lost but are a part of our family and heritage and the time will come when hopefully we will met them. So it would be nice to know a bit about them maybe 🙂 So whatever the motive for researching ones family hopefully this section of our website will prove interesting and useful for others including our own family as we build it up.
