Is this the last post about Grandad Beck?

Future posts

Can I end it here? No, but I do intend to take a break. Our garden needs some attention, Grandad Beck would not be impressed!  Going forward I will write occasional posts on a variety of subjects. There are so many more family members to research, more local history to investigate. As I wrote many of the posts, I found questions I didn’t have time to investigate and puzzles I would like to solve. Going forward I can take the time to research and answer some of these questions.  Do you have any questions or research you would like me to write about?

Photographs

I have been very fortunate that Grandad Beck took so many photographs and that they have survived within the family along with a few letters.  There are plenty more to show you, including a lot that his brother Earnest sent back from America.  I will leave you with one more photograph, I have several copies of this one and it is included in the albums, so it must have been a favourite.  It is most likely taken at Buckland Newton, in the cottage were Grandad Beck’s spent his childhood and at this time his mother, Frances and father, Eli, still lived there. The photograph looks as though he forgot to wind the film on.  It is a photograph of his first wife Rebecca, with another of Rebecca and his two children Lionel and May. It is sad to think that Grandad Beck was to outlive them all.

    1. Alison, thank you for all your comments on my posts, they have helped to keep me going. Yes, there is lots more family to research, I am spoilt for choice. I am not sure were, or should I say whom, I will choose for my next post. Thank you for your help with my recent post about Eli Beck, the information you sent was helpful. Now if you have anything else I could use….
      Best wishes Sylvia

  2. I have so enjoyed reading the blogs about the Beck family and have learnt so much about the family that I didn’t have a lot of information on. Please, when you have time, resume the blogs, they are so interesting and I have loved receiving them. All good wishes to you and your family, enjoy your summer.

    1. Heather,
      Thank you for all your help with the Beck family information. Some of the family legends that you have told me about will be interesting to investigated further. I have enjoyed researching and writing the posts, it is just deciding where to go next. I will not leave it too long but I will not write so frequently.
      Best wishes Sylvia

      Thank you for all your help with the police side of research, I really appreciated it. I think we will continue to get descendent of different officers contact me. I am glad you enjoyed all posts that were very family orientated, having the photographs made such a difference. Do stay in touch and good luck with your own research.
      Best wishes Sylvia
