11th May 2014

There were 10 of us in the Chapel Schoolroom to hear from Mary Randles about her search for the truth about Albert Bayles. It was a fascinating presentation and made us all realise just how difficult, but addictive, tracing ancestors can be. Mary has agreed to let Carol put a copy of her research on the website very soon, so if you weren’t able to join us today, you can read it later. As with all stories like this, there are many questions still to be answered, and many of them will never be answered. Sheila had her copy of the school registers with her so Mary was able to get dates for the time the children of John Bayles spent at Dallowgill School, helping her to fill one gap! Every little helps.

Many thanks to Mary for coming across from Lancashire to be with us – she has promised to come back and see us again.

Hope to see you at the next meeting on Sunday 8th June.
