Well there is a bit of updating to do, so will put a bit here now.
Another thing I have been doing, has been researching my family history. What an experience that is proving to be. Very frustrating on the one hand. Where are all my Grandads records? Intriguing on the other hand, as I wonder did Emily Swansberry (my 2nd Great Grandmother)
Emily Swansberry (1852 - )
is your 2nd great grandmother
Daughter of Emily
Daughter of Sarah
Daughter of Mary
You are the daughter of Iris Alice
have a child out of wedlock? Did she adopt a brother or sisters child? If it was her's, how come she did not marry the father as she was 20, and married 2 years later when the child took her husbands name. Some mysteries will probably never be solved, but it has been an amazing journey of discovery.
Recently a friend has done a 24 hour sponsored sing to raise money for the Withernsea RNLI. I felt very proud of him when the cheque for over £4,000 was handed over.
I have uploaded several of Kevins videos, and they can be found at KevinYoungSinger on youtube. Kevin is a lovely man, though maybe not always very sensible - after all he took on the challenge of teaching me to sing. OK Lyn, I can hear you laughing from here. But I have actually stood on stage and sung in public 3 times. I know I am not much good but I do try, and funnily enough I enjoy it too.
Rapidly heading towards my 63rd birthday, I realise there may not be much time to fulfill my ambitions, so I am embracing what is left of it and wondering why I could not do all these things when I was young...............
