With the coming of the new series of BBC1’s Who Do You Think You Are?, Emma has been looking again into her family tree. Whilst she has been delving into Genes Reunited and the UK Census Online, finding all manner of Jeffery’s that she was previously unaware and splurging credits on facsimile copies of census returns. As quickly as she’s been finding them I’ve been splicing them into my Brother’s Keeper database. I’ve also been filling out my family tree and getting quite into the genealogical research.

In the afternoon, faced with the prospect of another (unexpected) month in my ‘ickle house, Em decides that there are some more things she would like to get from Braywood Orchard (and also to check up on her stuff) so we head out to Berkshire. Everything’s fine and we pick up a few things before going for a walk at Burnham Beeches and then – unscheduled – dropping in on her parents to eat some locally bought fish’n’chips and report the details of the weekend’s genealogical research.
