Dedicated to the memory of Margaret HILTON nee TAYLOR (1902-1986)
For more years than I care to remember I have been interested in the history of my family. I can remember as a young teenager sitting for hours with my grandma talking about her life, relatives, and where she used to live. I was privileged to have one of those grandmas who had a phenomenal memory on matters family. Sadly she is no longer with us but hopefully her memory lives on in my research. Thanks Gran.
Much of my research has yet to be uploaded to the Internet but a start has been made at here
In addition I have a collection of references (information and web site links) to other HIGSONs in the world (mainly so far from the south of Lancashire).
As part of my teaching interests I run a short course on 'Genealogy on the Internet' access to which is restricted to my students (a man's got to earn a living).
Time permitting I will provide a list of links on these pages to help any budding family historians who come across these pages.
