This biography is deliberately vague on some aspects of my life, but revealing in ways which I trust are of no interest to advertisers if they are passed on Growing up during the war and in its aftermath I was forced by rationing into a balanced diet, supplemented by vegetables and fruit from a large garden. This with the care of an intelligent and devoted mother saw us grow up 6 foot tall and inquisitively intelligent though in different ways. I was academic: I passed my 11 plus in the highest grade and went to a "good school" by bus every day. I went on to pass my GCEs a year early and my "A" levels well enough to go to university, the first, but by no means the last in my family. But I had lost contact with my friends and to a significant extent with my family. I had not the faintest idea how to make or keep friends, least of all girl friends, so it is not surprising that I never married. My job as a History teacher dominated ny life.

Thanks for taking the Pre-1700 Quiz!
Because pre-1700 ancestors are shared by many descendants, working within the projects which coordinate them is essential. You can learn more about joining the community in How To #3 and in the Project FAQ.
Use the Pre-1700 Projects list to find one which best fits your research focus, whether time period, location, or special event. Read the goals and tasks of the project and join if it is a good fit.
