Here we are again after our break in November. Getting used to a new computer system and having to install and re-install various operating systems and software meant producing the Newsletter just didn't happen. We hope you didn't miss it too much!
Sadly our first task this month is to say a fond farewell to both June and Janet M. Having run out of images for transcription some time ago we can't find anything to keep them busy with Sussex 1851. June has moved onto the team for Surrey, while Janet is on the "waiting list" to see if Sussex images become available in the future. We wish them both well and say a big "Thankyou" for their contribution to the project. Between them they have added two dozen pieces to the database since 2008.
The cards and greetings are beginning to arrive here; Christmas is only a week or two away, and Dave reports the first snow of the winter in Canada. We'd like to thank you all for "hanging in there" in 2014 as we've tried to deal with the various complications with regard to FreeCEN, and hope that 2015 continues to be as productive.
Have a very Happy Christmas and a brilliant New Year!,

Samuel Bramwell signs off as enumerator at the end of his ED in Selsey, after entering the details of a young lady whom he somehow forgot to include as part of her family several pages earlier. When we looked up the schedule it was for his own family.
