  1. Hi everyone

    I have been doing genealogy for several years, but at times I come to a brick wall and end up stopping for a while then restarting again. Most of my research is in Cornwall, some of my family names are Rule, Annear, Scoble, Davey, Harvey, Matthews, Hoskins, Parsons.

    Hi All I have been researching my family history when time permits (work just keeps getting in the way) over the last 15 years.

  9. Munitions Factories

    Hi. Does anyone know of any Munitions Factories in Cornwall (Redruth area) in WW1? My husband's grandfather William Allen gave his occupation as a Munitions Worker when he married in 1917.
