Back on-line!
This website has been unavailable since AOL, in their wisdom and with no prior warning or apology, withdrew their members' access to personal web space. Inertia being one of my middle names, it has taken me until now to make other arrangements. I hope some of my old friends will soon find me, as well as other people who may be researching some of my names. I am SO glad to be back!!

It may take some time for me to get all the links working properly so please bear with me.

About me
My name is Jay Wright. I am a retired health service worker, living in the north-west of England, and my main interest is genealogy. I am also actively involved with the Family and Community Historical Research Society (FACHRS).  I would be glad of any feedback relevant to my site.

Updates
June 2010:  I added a page about my grandfather, David Sleigh Shiell, of Newcastle upon Tyne and his ancestors in Berwickshire.

September 2010:  I have done some more work on the family of James Lishman, the Westmorland artist and dancing master, in particular his eldest son James William.

October 2010: I have uncovered the sad story of George Lishman of Shildon's first brief marriage.

October 2010: Lishman > James Lishman of Cartmel > William's family. A member of this family has pointed out an error which I have now corrected. I had confused the histories of John and Alan, grandsons of John James Lishman. I am very grateful to my informant.
