On this website’s Home page is a verse from a song by my favourite singer-songwriter Billy Bragg about family heritage which touches me deeply every time I listen to it. You can click on the button below to read the lyrics or listen to his song.

“You can get facts from the web, but details are priceless and can often only be learned orally from relatives. Yet too many of us rue the fact that we are left to piece together family stories from fragments we recall because we never asked our elders those questions.”

Billy Bragg (Sep 2021)
