When I was a small child my Dad always used to say "From
little acorns, do great oaks
grow. "I had never given much thought to these words, until
about 8 years ago, when I
started, what I thought would be, a very short, quick trip
into the past, just to see
where the origins of my Mothers family were to be found.
I found the information I was after quite quickly, luckily it
is quite an unusual name
(Websdale), but ,Yes, you guessed it,that small acorn just
keeps growing, the more you
learn, the more you want to know. Just when you think you've
discovered enough, up pops a
new name that you just have to follow up. So, here
I am, 7 years and reams of
paper later, with a family history that covers 7-8 generations
of my mothers',
fathers' and husbands' families, plus all the branches that link
to them all.
(I think it's called 'obssession!')
