Odds and Ends

Ann Cushman provides a marvelous resource of odds and ends and tidbits and stuff from the unusual to the amusing. In between, you might find a clue or a new source of information to aid your research.


Information from member Frances Heales…

As we know, churches in England may have plaques on the walls which may contain genealogical information. There may also be brass plaques on the floors. You won’t see them as they’re covered with carpet for protection. People would roll up the carpet and do rubbings. If you research the old family churches you may at the very least find pictures of the building inside and out. There may also be information for tourists. Be sure you specify which town the church is in to find the correct one.
