Surfing the Internet and I came across ...

two great pictures of the derelict church where some of my ancestors and their kin are buried.
I have put them on "Search Photos and Media" for anyone that has ties with the district and would like the the piccies.
The place is Colston Bassett (Keywords). The one with the summer sunset is fantastic.
And what a bonus...My 3x great grandparents stone can clearly be seen on both piccies.

Thanks Girls , i consider myself dead lucky (pardon the pun) coming across those piccies. :-)

I think I will be needing a lot more luck with this family of relatives I`m into at the moment though.
Two of the sisters in it have 5 illegitimate between them, now I aint buying 5 certificates to find out who`s child belongs to whom. All born between 1858 and 1869.
It`s sheer murder sorting this family out they would make good participants for the "Jeremy Vile" show from what I`m coming up with at the moment.
One of these two girls goes on to marry a man who already has a son, this son goes on to marry the illegitimate daughter of his stepmothers sister.
And thus the plot thickens....Oooooo... My Brain hurts!... :-S :-S

Beginning to look a bit like... The families that play together, stay together. :-D
