About me,

 


Hello, I'm Christine, and this page tells you a bit more about me.

I have been happily married to my husband Philip since 1991 and have two children, Jordan and Joshua.

I was born in 1956 and I have lived in and around Banstead in Surrey, for most of my life.

I worked in the banking sector for twenty four years following which I became a registered child minder, a role I thoroughly enjoyed.

I am a member of the Banstead History Research Group and am currently involved in researching the one hundred and eighteen men remembered on our local memorial which commemorates both world wars. Starting with just a surname and initials, I have been able to find many of the families, enabling us to obtain much better information and sometimes photographs of the men.

Over the last eight years, my husband and I have been researching our own families and between us we now have over 4600 names.

I have had many hobbies over the years but none of them have been as interesting and rewarding as Family History. I get just as much pleasure by doing other peoples' family history, as I do my own, so I look forward to helping you with yours.......

Christine
