Family tree for youNewsletter
And Bygone Memories
August extra edition
We have been very busy this month with look-ups for newmembers Christine and myself have found a lot of differentfinds so we are very please with this last months work.We have these two groups and also a dolls house group whichwe have started but not a lot on it at the moment its only becauseI have the hobby of dolls houses that this was started.We enjoy doing the groups as it’s all-free for all our members but we also take on private people if they have any brick walls.On the groups we talk about the past memories things our  parents and grandparents used to tell us we go back in time andget really involved with all the stories that our members send in.
I will try to tell you about the pit falls you get in Genealogy,which I myself did experience 32 years ago when I first startedout with this hobby.My auntie who was aged 75 and a sister of my late fathers phoned me one day and asked if I had ever wanted to do afamily tree as its some thing that she had always wanted to do asa young girl but had never found the time with working I did saythat I did not even know how to start to do this so she did sayshe had some names for me and would I look into it I did say ok at the time but then wished I had not.I went to my local library and collected as many books what Iwas allowed to borrow and took them home for weeks I wasreading up about how to start your family tree and got really bored with all the reading I then decided to buy a computer for the shop that my husband and I ran The computer was installedand that night I went on the net and looked around it all lookedso scary at first but then it started to sink in where and how I hadto start so out came the pen and note book and started to make asmall tree of names I knew .I was never off the phone to auntie asking questions which shetried to tell me what she knew and as she spoke I was at theother end writing it all down some things did not fit in but I still jotted every thing down what she had said I enrolled at a localMormon church just up the road from me where I booked afiche reader and films I actually did not know what I waslooking for at all but they did help me a lot so I went there for about 2 years but did not seem to be getting any further with mytree and then my auntie died suddenly so she would never knowany out come in later years .After about 2 years I did get all the names down and put theminto order and had what looked like a family tree so I wasgetting some where at last ,I then order the family tree magazineand used to read up on different things which helped me whereto find things and where to go etc I had seemed to be doing this
tree for a few years and came to lots of brick walls as we call itso I wrote to a researcher that used to write in the family treemagazine and asked for help to check out what I had done so far think on I had been doing this tree for nearly 4 years and wasgetting no where so I sent him all I had and a few weeks later heinformed me that I had got the wrong family In my tree I had aDaniel Powell who was my gt gt granddad and my auntie hadsaid he was from Wales so on that line I went in fact that was allwrong he was born in Kent in Woolwich so after a few monthsof putting it all straight and the help of the researcher I was onthe right track ,So that was my first pitfall in genealogy .He told me that if you suddenly find that it does not look rightits because you have the wrong person so from then on I learnt alot from this man and he is still a good friend as well now after all these years now I know where to look and search.So please when first starting out don’t make the same mistake asI did.
EARLY DONCASTERDoncaster began when the Romans built a fort in the area about 71AD. The Romans called the fort Danum. However in the 4th centuryRoman civilisation declined and the last Roman soldiers left Britain in407 AD.After the Romans left the Saxons invaded Eastern England. TheSaxons called a Roman fort a ceaster. When they arrived in SouthYorkshire they called this one Don ceaster. In time the namechanged to Doncaster and they created a village nearby.In the 12th century Doncaster grew into a busy town. In 1194 KingRichard I gave Doncaster a charter (a document granting or confirming certain rights). In the Middle Ages Doncaster was a busylittle market town although it would seem tiny to us. In 1204Doncaster suffered a disastrous fire. In the Middle Ages mostbuildings were of wood so fire was a constant hazard. On the other hand if buildings did burn they could be easily be replaced.
