Hello Alan. Just to say "well done" on a fantastic site! I'm researching family from Ross and surrounds at the moment, and your sensational photography has been a true pleasure amidst a sea of censuses, births, deaths and marriages! Keep up the great work,

Best regards
Geraldine Gibson (an Australian in Spain)

Thank you for your very kind comments, Geraldine and good luck with your research! It is extremely nice and a refreshing change to receive an email from a polite person undertaking family research. I know you haven't asked but I wish I were able to offer help with your family quest. Regarding your second email; when your new web site is complete, I will link to it, which may help in some way.

Genealogy is a popular interest and, although I research my own family when time allows, if I tried to help every genealogist who wrote to me, most of whom begin their letters 'hi' or 'hey', and then go straight into an unreadable dialogue about their ancestry, I would need to invent the 240 hour day, instead of the shorter 36 hour variety.

Hi Alan, I am viewing your web site from here in New Zealand. Wyenot.com came up in a google search for "old street map of Ross-on-Wye" Its a great site - neatly laid out and very easy to navigate - so good that it distracted me for longer than I intended! Fast downloading too (for us dial-up types) as the photographs are arranged in small groups.

Loved the bells! Worked fine after they were buffered. One suggestion would be to warn people that the download is 2MB, just in case dial-up users don't want to experiment with a file of that size.

I've been researching my family since the 1980's, and my Morse ancestors spent many years in Ross (1846 to about 1862) in the butchery trade, and the Clarks were there even longer (stonemasons, greengrocers etc). Although I've been a member of the Herefordshire Family History Society for over 20 years, there is little mention of Ross in their publications, so periodically I look about the 'net to see if someone has opened up a page or two on the history of the town. Perhaps if you have a "tame" local historian they might like to write a column for Wyenot News - that would be a great feature.

Looks like you folk had fun on "Ross in Bloom" day. I noticed the reader's query re the Green Dragon pub (issue 55) and have emailed the article to a distant relative whose great grandfather ran the place, suggesting that he contacts you if he is able to help.

Keep up the good work. I'll visit regularly and start working through the back issues.

Regards,
Ken Morse

PS NZ may not mean that Wyenot News is now being read from Antarctica, but its close!
