On Thursday 30th April we woke up to find that overnight Cabbage and Semolina had reached the top spot in Social and Urban History Biographies to become an Amazon Number One Bestseller!
It might only be for today but we are delighted and many, many thanks to all readers and reviewers.
By the time you're reading this blogpost the moment may be long past but the wonder of ebooks is that once uploaded they're available 24/7 for .... ever???
Follow this link to the Cabbage and Semolina bookpage at Amazon to sample and download the book.
Don't have a Kindle? Did you know there's a free Kindle app for phones, tablets, iPads, laptops, PCs etc. There is information about it on every bookpage on the Amazon website.
Spring is in the air and it's time for tidying up my computer files and taking stock of where to go in my family history researches.
Over the years I've accumulated a wealth of data and information about each strand of my family tree but it's true to say I've neglected keeping good records of sources relying too much on computer folders and not enough on referencing.
However, I'm not overly motivated to go over old ground but I know there are several brick walls that could do with some more chiselling. So I've made a start by looking at the places of birth of all my known antecedents going back five generations and can now see at a glance where I need to do some more searching.
