I don’t seem to have achieved much this week, job seeking is at the forefront of my mind, but I have continued sorting through my hard drive and getting myself organised.
I have continued looking at the BATEMAN family of Gloucestershire, but I just can’t seem to get excited about them. I am not really sure why it should be, perhaps it is because I don’t have easy access to the right records. I need to find some hook into this family that is going to keep me interested.
A fine example is with the HEMSLEY family, whilst trying to increase the number of HEMSLEYs in my family tree, I noticed a connection between the HEMSLEY and GILES families and Blackboys Inn, in Blackboys near Framfield, Sussex. That definitely makes me want to investigate further.
- Continue working through my digital files updating Family Historian and sorting out folders and standardising my filenames.
- Continue working on the BATEMAN family, updating details for more of the family, but also trying to find something of interest to keep me hooked.
- Find out about Blackboys Inn, and find out about the HEMSLEY and GILES connection, to see what the connection is to my ancestors.
- The three certificates that I ordered last week should arrive this week and open up some new avenues of research and possibly provide some answers if I am lucky.
