I have added a number of 1911 census's from England and you will notice that they have been filled out by our ancestors. This one was Ambrose E Platt's, who was Grandad Platt's father,and his family in 1911 which included his daughter Winifred who died that same year. James Leslie Platt(Grandad Platt) and his sister Lillian had not yet been born.
Here is a photo of Ambrose and Jane Platt around 1900 and of Ambrose in France during WWI where he died.
Here is Ambrose's parents census written by his mother Georgina and the following photo is of her
Here is a letter by Maureen Schultz on the visit to Chell Workhouse where her Great Great Great Grand Father and Georgina's father, Benjamin Rowe, died in 1880.
I am adding information as I find it and others have helped a great deal. Sherree has added a lot of the Ray Family photo's and so now we can see more of our ancestors on that side of the family. When viewing the tree keep in mind that there are many family's and branches of family's on this site so if you are interested in seeing how you are related or even if you are, use the People link at the top and scroll down to relationship link and it will take you to a page where you can choose yourself or anyone else in the tree, and another person on the tree, to see how they are related.
For those familiar with the bible based hope of the resurrection it is exciting to think of meeting our ancestors in the resurrection. (Acts 24:15)says, And I have hope toward God, which hope these [men]themselves also entertain, that there is going to be a resurrection of both the righteous and the unrighteous. Not only will there be those who will go to heaven but there will also be those resurrected right here on earth. The bible is the only place we can find the true information about Gods promises.
If any one is related to any of the ancestors on our family tree I would love to hear from you. I am slowly adding family members and have photo's of ancestors that I am also trying to put to names. If anyone is interested in adding their photo's let me know, I'd love to add them.
If you use the People link at the top and go to the events link it will take you to a Calendar where you will see some events.
If you have any suggestions or would like to add anything either contact me or sign the guest book and I'll get back to you. I also have a family tree on ancestry.com with alot of photo's.
Below is a family video. It is best to let it load before you watch it, otherwise you will be watching it stop and go,stop and go. There is a link in the links box on the right side of the page that will take you to more family video's on YouTube.
