Tingewick Historical Society - Great War Project
To commemorate the centenary of the start of WW1 members of Tingewick Historical Society are researching Tingewick's WW1 soldiers who are named on our village war memorials.
We would love to hear from people descended from those families who have photographs or stories to share with us.
I really appreciate all the stories and photos I'm sent to add to the website. Alas, it often takes much longer than I'd like to get them onto the site, but I do get there eventually. I have at least now resolved my problems with running PAF on an iMac so am starting to tackle a huge backlog of mail - feel free to send me a reminder if you have been waiting more than a few months! If you have sent a story or your details for inclusion in the Descendants/Researchers section, please check them and let me know if I've made mistakes - they do happen sometimes I'm afraid. And if you haven't sent anything yet ... why not? This site is only improving and expanding because of all the help and contributions from everyone else.
Do check out the What's New list.
About this site
People ask me why I run this site just to help other people. The first answer is - I enjoy it. The second answer is - you never know what unexpected connections you might make. But mostly it's because of The Man From Penketh
While researching my daughter's ancestry, I became fascinated by the movement of ordinary people through the parish of Tingewick and accumulated quantities of transcripts and notes about them. I have been piecing them together into family trees: however, it is vital to realise that these will be full of errors, having been transcribed on paper from microfilm or original register or from information sent by other researchers: then transferred to computer as source transcripts, then finally built into families on the database.
It's nearly twenty years since I started this site. Since then I've heard from so many really interesting people. I've had fascinating contributions to all the sections especially photos, wills and family stories as well as links to sites by other researchers. Alas, with family and work commitments etc I constantly fall behind so have added two more pages - Coming Soon and What's New. If you have contributed something and it doesn't appear on one or other of these lists (or the website), please get in touch with me again and remind me!!!
If you would like to be included in 'Tingewick Descendants' section, please email me your details, in the same format as the pages I have already done [or ask me for a template] and I will be delighted to add you.
