Welcome

My name is PHILIP JAMES WOOD, Born in 1945, I started this site. 

I have worked since millennium to collate masses of information, about the population of my village of WHITTINGTON, nr LICHFIELD. Any families with links to WHITTINGTON stand a good chance of being included.

See our website, whittingtonhistorysociety.org.uk (NEW Site)

----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

 Lord, help me dig into the past, and sift the sands of time,

That I might find the roots that made, this family tree of mine.

 Lord, help me trace the ancient roads, on which my father’s trod, 

And led them through so many lands, to find our present sod.

Lord, help me find an ancient book, or dusty manuscript,

That's safely hidden away, in some forgotten crypt.

 Lord, let it bridge the gap that haunts, my soul, when I can't find,

The missing link between some name, that ends the same as mine.

 

                              Dear Ancestor:

Your tombstone stands among the rest, neglected and alone.
 The name and date are chiselled out on polished, marble stone.
 It reaches out to all who care, it is too late to mourn.
 You did not know that I exist, you died, fore I was born.
 Yet each of us are cells of you in flesh, in blood, in bone.
 Our blood contracts and beats a pulse entirely not our own.
 Dear Ancestor, the place you filled one hundred years ago
 Spreads out among the ones you left who would have loved you so.
 I wonder if you lived and loved, I wonder if you knew
 That someday I would find this spot, and come to visit you.

This site was created using MyHeritage.com. a great system that allows anyone to create a private site for their family, build their family tree and share family photos.

The smart Matching system, whilst helpful, may also deluge you with many useless matches too. most matches over 70% are good, but those below 70% are often garbage.

What a pity one cannot set a limit of acceptability!
