The Cockett familyThis is a blog following my attempts to research my family history.  I have boxes of photographs, letters and documents and am attempting to find an order in the chaos.  I am hoping by writing little and often that things will become clearer, categories will emerge and my family tree will grow and prosper.

I was born and still live in Brighton, on the south coast of England.  I spend my time writing, blogging, spending time with family and friends, watching Brighton and Hove Albion Football Club and walking beside the sea. I have had case studies published in the magazine ‘Your Family Tree’, and had a guest blogging spot for Mslexia women’s writing magazine.

You will see a drop down list of categories on the right hand side of the home page.  These will hopefully guide you to things and people that interest you, whether it be the history of Brighton, my family history, Brighton & Hove Albion, or learning more about the individuals that make up my extended family.

There is a Tag Cloud on the left side of the home page, this will make it easier for you to click on the words that interest you.

Or at the top of the page on the right, there is a search box, so you can just type in what you are looking for, click the button and it should take you right there!
