The HIGSON network is a series of web pages and sites covering my interests - history (including, but not exclusively, family & local history), web design & teaching (teaching IT, web design, and family history), providing a resource, and a reference point for others with similar interests. As you can see from the menu above I also find music of all types relaxing and a form of escapism.
I am currently a part-time tutor in Information Technology (IT) (otherwise known as computers). I teach all the main aspects of Information Technology, but one I have a keen interest in is web design as you will see if you click the link above.
Another subject I have a keen interest in (which I also teach) is genealogy (family history) and following the link above will take you to pages of general genealogical interest as well as pages displaying my genealogy. Also you will find an attempt to cover the genealogy of the HIGSON name in general, at least in south Lancashire.
Probably my greatest passion is history hence the history link above which will take you to pages covering Bury Metro and the six townships which came together in 1974 to create it.
I have a number of other interests (while I am doing nothing) which you can read about, and link to, by following the 'who am I' link above.
