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.

In Rememberance

Remembering Aurea Elliot Telford who died in Newcastleton, on November 23 2009. Thank you June for letting me know. Aurea was a second cousin to June and to my mother, Margaret. There is an article about her posted earlier on this blog. She lived in Bewcastle most of her life, farming with her husband at Holmehead for many years, and active in so many ways in that community. She was a founding member of the Bewcastle Heritage Society, and she generously shared old family photos with me when I met her a few years ago. Aurea will be missed.
