You may remember me, Suzi Brent, from the ambulance blog, Nee Naw. While I used to write about people dying, I now write about people who have been dead for a long time. A peek into my genealogical rabbit hole five years got out of hand and I am now studying to become a genealogist. My particular interests lie in 19th century Essex and the lives of real people during the two world wars. I will be using this blog to introduce some of my ancestors and describe the methods I used to untangle their mysteries, and I’ll also be providing a few how-to guides for those of you wanting to start your own research.
