I have been actively researching my family tree since about 1985 and how now collected
a sizeable database. You can see our family tree here. More detailed information
and pictures of people who are still alive is not available without a User Account.
Family members can apply for a User Account through the web site.
I have been interested in boats for as long as I can remember and it was this interest
that led us to our present home on the river. We currently own a Princess 32 motor
cruiser named Tahoe.
I took piano lessons as a child and, although I did not get very far, I have remained
interested in keyboard instruments ever since. I soon switched from the piano to
the organ and have owned and restored a variety of organs.
I have also been interested inn mechanical music for a very long time. Instruments
such as fairground organs have always been beyond my reach, both in terms of size
and expense. However, early in 2010 I came across John Smith who has spent many
years developing smaller self-playing organs suitable for amateurs to build. I have
now built one and information on my progress can be found here.
