Something completely different

posted in: General

Contrary to the popular belief of many who know me, my life is not just filled with walking, gardening, dogs, embroidery, sewing and all the other ‘crafty’ interests that I pursue. Researching family history – my own and that of others – combined with interests in most other aspects of ‘history’ and a love of books and their contents, and then sharing the discoveries with others through the written word, is very much to the forefront of my everyday life. I feel very privileged to be able to volunteer, and have access to the wonderful collection of books, at the Library of Innerpeffray and be able to carry out research on former borrowers, using the Borrowers Register (1747-1968), and on individual books. These are just a few of the books that have featured in recent projects or will feature in two projects which I am currently researching.
