Once, Twice, Three Times A Lovely Blog

Kisses to Sharon, Ros and Fi, who think I'm a Lovely Blog. Right back at ya, darlings!

After four-and-a-half years of blogging (which is 27 web-years according to footnoteMaven), I must confess I'm a bit old and jaded when it comes to these blog awards. However it hasn't escaped my notice that there seems to be quite a few UK geneablogs popping up lately, so I'll wave my walking stick towards these bright-eyed young whippersnappers and wish them the best of luck on their blogging journeys.....

March update

This month I've added one more military man - or have I? Arthur Ernest Fountain has a record in the WO97 military pensions series, and while I haven't viewed that record yet I have gone ahead and listed him. He may or may not be the same "A Fountaine, an old soldier" who died in 1916 - watch this space!

The second addition this month is another newspaper report on the coroner's inquest of baby Jane Bowden in 1857. This particular report has detailed quotes from the evidence of a number of Wing residents, but as this crime was a particularly sad one readers may find the report upsetting.
