Malcolm’s family tree
Mum has finally finished her research on Malcolm Kennedy’s family tree, so I took it over to him last week to show him what she had found. (We have more or less exhausted our own family research after 25 years, so it is fun to have a go at other people’s for a change). He comes from good working class stock, in Northumberland and Cumberland, and in South Scotland, very interesting. Three generations of publicans in Kirkby Stephen, miners, farmers, agricultural labourers, some fascinating census returns too. Now I need to find another friend for her to research.
