I was born in Warrington, Cheshire, went to school in Manchester, studied law in Birmingham and Chester and went on to qualify as a solicitor in Warrington.
After a few months in practice, I decided that another 40 years of conveyancing, divorces and litigation weren't what I wanted out of life and I left my job to work for Eurocamp, a tour operator, on a campsite in France. I ended up working for Eurocamp in various roles for the next 30 years until we were taken over; and I retired.
One of the hobbies I took up on finishing work was researching our family history, which I have found fascinating. Wikitree's Orphan Trail introduced me to a range of resources that I never knew existed and disciplines that will help me to record my findings for cousins and future generations. Thanks to Wikitree's collaborative approach, I am able to carry on developing my knowledge and pass on some of my experience to others.
Digital afterlife statement: When I have become unable to continue my work here on WikiTree, through physical or mental illness, or die, I do not want any of my Profiles deleted. I give permission for the Profiles I am Profile Manager of to be transferred to one of my family members, any of the other w WikiTreers who have collaborated with me, or WikiTree admin - the best distribution for each Profile to be determined at the time. My profile should be taken over by one of my children; or one of my WikiTree friends or relatives if they decline Whitfield-2424 19:11, 3 February 2023 (UTC)
