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 terms of finding photographs, I can recommend looking at the Geograph website. Many photographs are placed there, covering all areas of the country. I have a link to the Bewcastle section of the site under Links in the column on the left of this page. Many useful photos of Bewcastle may be found there, with instructions on how they may be used. For convenience, here is the link: http://www.geograph.org.uk/search.php?i=2898548&page=1.
