I originally created this blog to document my work on the family history of my grandmother, Maggie Goodfellow Story, later known as Madge Rogers. She was from Bewcastle. After it became evident that other family historians were attracted to the site, I invited them to share their memories and family histories from Bewcastle and the surrounding parishes. And so, it is evolving into a useful research tool for genealogists. Please note, if you want to read my original work, you will need to scroll down to the beginning of the blog and continue reading up.

If you have information that you would like to share here, or a question, you need to become a blog author and make a posting. To do this, contact me at rosemarydale3@yahoo.co.uk, and I will send you a permission. However, I can not respond to requests for further information or assistance.

Another Welcome

I have received a very interesting email from a fellow Bewcastle researcher, and it seems we are third cousins, once removed. Tom, do I have your permission to post your email here? One of my planned future areas of research is to look into Robert Forster and his wife Mary Ewart. I had also tracked Elizabeth Forster Goodfellow to Crookburn. Tom descends from a brother of Elizabeth.
