Thankyou so much Malcolm. I have sent you a PM

Hi Dionne & Others.
I have been reading through the pages with interest & maybe i can be some help. As i live in Colchester i can look-up in the library anything you need checking.
Re the Livermores on the 1901 census in Colchester, i have 2 pictures of Balkerne Lane showing possibly the house in which lived. If you want a copy PM your email address.

Hi Nicola

Thankyou. I went and had a look at their site. I will be keeping my fingers crossed with this one.


Nicki Report 8 Jan 2008 20:38


FYI - just copied this off their website:

Personal visits to the archive are welcome by prior appointment only.Written enquires should enclose a stamped, self-addressed envelope.

Check out the address for RAMC Museum and also the Army Medical Directorate and write to them instead - They will be more likely to reply to you and are more likely to have access to the answers you require.



Dionne Report 8 Jan 2008 19:42

Hi All

I am going to do as you sugested Wayne.
Nicola. I wrote to the Army Personnel Centre in Glasgow.



WayneTracey Report 8 Jan 2008 00:17


I do hope within your book you will print all this thread out page for page so your father can read the wonderful journey we went on, on his behalf...


Nicki Report 7 Jan 2008 20:38


What Army address did you write to?

Just wanted to say well done to everyone,you all deserve medal's.

It's heart warming to know there so many good people out there.

Dionne, it's fetched a tear to my eye a few times, so happy for you and your father.
I at the moment have no root's on my fathers side,so i understand how important it must be for your father.

Will tune in again for next episode.

What a lovely idea Dionne - he must have been thrilled!


Jennifer Report 7 Jan 2008 19:25

Hello Dionne and all... I'm still here and 'watching' for news.
Your dear Dad must be thrilled to have some 'roots' Dionne, what a lovely gift..
Kind regards, Jennifer


Ozibird Report 7 Jan 2008 19:15

Dionne, I am so pleased for you & everyone else who has helped you that your father loves what you've done.



Dionne Report 7 Jan 2008 19:08

Good evening everyone.

Thankyou so much for all of your kind words..You are all so kind..

I couldn't have done half of this or found out so much information without the help of some fantastic members here. You are all so wonderful.

On Christmas day I presented my dad with two mounted frames of his family tree. The Livermore's and the Sloper's. He was so touched and and the frames have pride of place hanging on his wall in the sitting room. I am hoping to put a book together soon for him with all of the information that I have gathered and obtained.

I still haven't heard anything from the Army.I will leave it for a few weeks and if there is still no news then I will write to them again.

Many thanks everyone.

Hi everyone who reads this thread, it's a great story and I am hooked I might add that I only started reading this thread in November and as everyone says there are some very nice people who have helped Dionne in her quest.
Keep up the good work

Just sat and read the entire thread - brilliant reading and the help and support from GR members is outstanding.


Paul Report 6 Jan 2008 19:38

Hello Dionne,
Well done, what a quest. Once again GR members freely give their time, effort and support. Your dad must be proud of you. The one thing I must say is that life goes on and although your gran appears to have a lot to answer for, it is all in the past. Now your family is growing and you all have an opportunity to get to know each other and each others families.

May I wish you and your dad all the very best for the New Year.

Just a thought that in a similar quest to yours, it was proving difficult to keep track of everyone mentioned in the "Threads" until a member put a tree on GR. This proved to be extremely useful in reminding people who was related to who.

Taken me an absolute age to read through all the threads, but very gripping.

Take care


WayneTracey Report 6 Jan 2008 17:27

I do firmly believe if the TV show Who Do You Think You Are? where doing normal ordinary folk, they def should pick this thread... there is still so much to discover that would make great TV.

Dionne you are a total inspiration on how to keep people gripped and enthralled...this also reminds me that despite how we deem life today and the antisocial ways people behave; we can still all pull together and help others without any personal gain ourselves other than the fact we have made someone elses life a little better....

Before this thread dissapears into the ether i just want to go on record and say thanks to Dionne and everyone else who has helped out, looked in or just generally been there....

You have all proved to me this wall bashing game we all play day after day, trying to understand people who have long been dead is really worth it.

What an amazing journey!

It beats watching any soap on television. Well done to all those who have assisted Dione in her search.

Looking forward to the next instalment !
