Those of us (and we know who we are) who spend much time "messing around in blogs" want to invite others to join in on "And we've still got pudding to come" and/or "Our Bewcastle Ancestry". You may have noticed how excited I was when a newly found relative, Steven Harding, recently introduced himself through a comment. He says he stumbled on to the blog, and there saw a picture of his grandfather as a little boy. Steven is Cumbrian born and bred, though now lives in London, and has many relatives in the area. This does indeed support Nic's belief in the "power of the internet".
June meanwhile knows some of his relatives. June recently shared some lovely family information through an email which I know would be of interest to others. She has a depth of Bewcastle lore. (And she needs to correct some of my errors. [That's the trouble with living relatives!!!]) I am delighted to say that June wants to contribute to both blogs. I will be sending her permissions. (Please see previous post.)
I am very happy to add authors to this blog. If you would like to become a contributor, email me at email@example.com and I will send you an invitation. Then you can post anything of interest to those of us with roots in and around the Bewcastle area. So do not be shy to join us and contribute whenever you want.
