25 Jun 2017 After a lot of work the Castleton Tree suite has been updated including new data from wills. This has only complicated matters as new people have been identified that are not in the parish register ( these are wills earlier than available PR data). The Castleton origins page has also been updated

10 May 2017 After a long hall the ultimate Needham will data base for those Needham's from Derbyshire is now available

6 Apr 2017 The Oldham BBM data has been updated, but there is still a lot to do. But I'm going to take a rest from the Oldham Needham's to clear my head. There are three trees which I will put on the site once I can sync FTM with Ancestry

16 Mar 2017 the outcome of a major exercise is starting. Oldham in Lancashire has a very large population of Needham's. To date I've found nearly 1000. The problem is the vast majority have the same christian name ie John or James or Mary or Sarah etc. Drawing up trees and family relationships is a challenge; so I thought I'd put the base Oldham BBM data on line before I'm ready with the trees. Please contact me if you've worked on the Oldham Needham's I could do with some help

30 Jan 2017 More info on Nottinghamshire Needhams' has been added with family data for Nottingham city and trees for Nottingham city

27 Jan 2017 Maps have been introduced showing where the Needhams' lived and when they were first recorded living there. The first maps have been published for the overall family line as well as those for the Derbyshire Needhams' and Nottinghamshire

14 Jan 2017 A start has been made drawing up timelines for each of the family lines plus a summary based on all the information currently available. Each timeline includes the major events plus the places the Needham's lived at. You can access the timelines for Castleton, the Kilmorey's, Thornsett & Cowley and a summary for all Needham's based on what is currently available. All are available through the Timeline page

4 Jan 2017 A New Year rings in a new era: Nottinghamshire data. Baptism, burial & marriage data for Worksop has been added plus the associated family data, origins page and trees

28 Dec 2016 Well with my new Xmas presents I can now plot distribution maps. Interestingly the distribution of Needham's baptised between 1600 and 1630 has thrown in some interesting variants. London has by far the highest number of births followed by Derbyshire. Looking at a parish level then Hartington, the parish where the Needham's originated, has the highest baptism rate. A detailed look a the distributions of needham's has shown that Nottinghamshire, Lincolnshire and Leicestershire have high incidents of Needham's and I shall be attacking these counties next

22 Dec 2016 If you're sad enough you can follow my daily workings on the Needham ONS blog!

21 Dec 2016 The Derbyshire summaries of baptisms, marriages and burials has been updated, duplicates removed so it is now more user friendly

I must thank Sue McNulty for providing transcriptions for these parishes and critiquing the trees

28 Nov The Needham baptism, burial and marriage data for Rotherham has been updated. Previously the baptism data stopped at 1721 because the parish records were impossible to read. Bishop Transcripts allow the records to go back to the mid 16th century. Additionally, moore parental data has been found for a number of burial records.

7 Aug The Needham family tree for Barlow parish is now on line. It contains most of the people baptised in Barlow. They must have been real home birds

9th June; A site search facility can now be used and is accessed on the home page. You can separately search the trees database using the Webtree software

8th June: Well that was a saga. I ran into a problem after trying to upgrade the site functionality. This failed so after uninstalling the 'add on' to the site that was not working properly, I found that the site was not working properly; so I have had to restore an earlier copy that I had on backup. It's taken a long time but happily all is now working well and later today I'll upgrade the site with some new software - after backing everything up. For an old man it's been a worrying no trying experience

6th June: Page Access problem - following an attempt to update the site software to include a site search engine I've created a problem accessing some pages and all the trees. Please be patient while I attempt to resolve the problem which is wholly of my own making. I'm no IT expert and some would say a questionable genealogist
