I have just joined and would like to introduce myself, I was born 22 Aug 1941 and lived in Russell Close, Bexleyheath until 1967. I would like to research my family history, which now I'm older leaves a lot of gaps that have never bothered me in the past but do now. Both my Mother & Father passed away when I was 26-28 and since then I dont know much. My Dad had a brother when he lived at home in Gateshead, Durham, and went to Canada for fourteen yearsand my mother had six sisters and two brothers, one of whom died in the war as a tail gunner, they came from East Ham, Barking. I can remember going to see them as a child, but then it just seems to peter out.
I have recently retired from publishing and live at Greatstone, Kent. My wife and I enjoy walking and our hobbies of Model railways and dolls houses as well as going away for short breaks to Exmoor etc. I dont know how I seem to know so little about relatives, somehow it didn't matter when I was young.
I'm just starting this quest, so if anyone can help while we muddle along by ourselves it would be appreciated.
