In 2007 I returned to the UK, after living 34 years in the U.S., to care for my elderly father. My Dad passed away last September but I am still here in Northumberland. My youngest son has been living here with me for the last year. We discovered that he had been a dual citizen all along, as am I.
What with one thing and another, I took quite a break from my family history research. Unfortunately, I have not yet got all my Bewcastle materials here. But, hopefully, when I visit the States in February, I can carry back with me all my copies of the Bewcastle Journal, the Knowe church record transcript, the St. Cuthbert's transcript and more. (A lovely photo of St. Cuthbert's can be found on the church profile, linked on the Bewcastle site.)
I have spent a bit of time during my half-term week (I am back working in a school), updating this blog. I think you will receive notification of any new posts on the blog, if you sign up as a follower. The link is on the left hand side of this page.
