Cheshire Salt Ancestors

A quick reminder that my latest feature for Discover My Past England this month is filled with tips on how to trace your ancestors if they worked in the Cheshire salt industry. You can also read the story of the industry during Georgian times in my book Regency Cheshire.

Great illustration, Sue.
Really like your research and the information you post.

Not enough, "English," people look at our blogs. That is a shame.
Blogging doesn't seem so popular here.

Hi Tony, I just really love eighteenth and nineteenth century history in particular and there is always something new to learn!
