WELCOME to Ann McClean's CAWTHORN, SCOTT
My CAWTHORN, SCOTT & DeSilva PALMER Family History Pages Why on earth did I start all this? About September 1999, I remembered that my mother had many copious notes relating not only to her own family history but to my father's also. We had talked many times before about putting our Family History together but, (and does this sound familiar?) we'd never got round to it. I also wanted to improve my computer skills and after much recommendation, downloaded the "Brother's Keeper" database to use for recording family information. Later, after a spell in hospital, I began recording this information, using initially my Birthday Book as a guide for immediate family members, (while I got used to how "Brother's Keeper" worked!), and gradually moving on to my mother's notes. And just like Topsy, the whole project just "growed".
My On-line yard sale, attic sale, call it what you will continues on eBid.uk where I have nearly 2000 items listed across five online stores - such sundry items as books & magazines, lacemaking books, bobbins and patterns, 1930s Cigarette cards, vintage postcards, Cross Stitch charts, CDs, keyrings, vintage knitting & crochet patterns - the list is endless. These are items from my own home that have been inherited/collected along the way, but need to go now as we downsize towards retirement. Click HERE to register on eBid for free.

|Many countries around the world have produced postage stamps with lace in some form - bobbin, needle and machine|
- featured on them. Here are some stamps featuring lace - and lacemakers - from my own collection.
|As my New Year's resolution, I'm planning on loading *ALL* the old sepia family photos in my possession onto|
my Flickr pages - and then spend the rest of the year adding name labels and links back to the relevant family pages
on my website. Should keep me busy :)
