A Family Tree can wither if nobody tends it's roots
I guess that most of us have dusty old boxes filled to the brim with old photos tucked away in a cupboard somewhere or in the top of the wardrobe............I know I have.
Occasionally we take them down, spend an hour or so looking through them, remembering that holiday in Rome or the 21st birthday of a cousin you’ve not seen for years, before putting the box back and forgetting about it again until the next time. Well this is me, Susan Hyde and up until a few years ago that was exactly what I used
to do. But as I've got older, I’m 51 now, I’ve started to think about the faces staring out at me from those old Black and White photos and began to wonder who they were and what their connection was to me.
As it turned out my dad had started tracing the ‘Hyde’ family tree and had already collected a lot of information together.
William (Tom) Hyde
He had been in touch with various family members for any help they could give him remembering names and dates and his cousin Pat had been especially helpful, having supplied him with photos of some long lost relatives as well as important remnants of information to go with them.
