Contact MeYou may want to contribute to the website or use information from it, if so please get in touch. One proviso: this is a one-woman-website so whilst I am usually able to acknowledge your mail I may not be in a position to reply in full for a week or two (longer in holiday periods).
If you are requesting an image read on, otherwise skip to the gubbins which describe how to email me.
Image requestsIf you would like to use an image from the website - thanks for asking, it is appreciated - I will help if I can. Most images have been contributed by others and they retain copyright; so I will need to forward your request to the contributor.
The contributor may be happy to allow their family photo or postcard to be re-used but may prefer it not to be. Experience shows requests from or on behalf of commercial enterprises are more likely to be declined than those originating in academic or personal research.
As to how to make your image request...
Email addressThe email address is made up of three parts:
Email subjectSuggest you include the surname or High Street address.
Email contentIf you have a family history question it will help if you say what you have already searched (otherwise I may suggest you try things you have already tried).
What happens nextI will normally come back to you within a few days of receiving your email, even if it is just to let you know I have received it and will need a little more time to reply in full.
At this stage I may add a note to the 'Coming Soon' area of the Home Page about your contact: please let me know if you do not want your full name shown - please be aware of possible security issues.
What follows depends on what you have written about, but it may lead to
A new web page for your family, memories etcI want the site to include as much useful material to everyone as possible, so am keen to make the process simple for you. There is no charge for creating a new web page and you do not need to prepare the web page yourself. I just need your help to get the content right.
Security issuesPlease be aware that, if you use online banking, PayPal or similar AND you use family names as your account password (eg your mother's maiden name) then there is a risk that this could be used by someone in an attempt to access your account..
You should also consider whether to include information about living relatives or personal information about yourself (eg home address or telephone no.). Are you happy for your full name to be shown? If not please let me know (in any case I will not publish your email address as this could result in you being deluged with spam emails).
Your new pageWhen your new web page is ready I will send it to you for checking before adding links to it from the rest of the web site. Within a couple of weeks of a draft web page being prepared Google and other search engines will pick it up.
Updating or removing your web pageIf you ever want to update or remove a page about your family, memories etc just get in touch again: once the page is there it is a relatively quick job to update or remove it.
Research assistance: Brentford and elsewhereIf you seek help researching your Brentford family or property I will try to assist by pointing you to other web sites, books and libraries. I will also check if I have any other relevant material that has not gone on to the web site as yet and endeavour to put you in touch with researchers of the same family name.
This website includes some help pages, eg details of online Parish Registers for Brentford in ancestry.co.uk and help in locating wills.
If you seek non-Brentford research advice I suggest looking at the Web links, Brentford Plus for sources (and tips on how to use them) that may help you.
I look forward to hearing from you!
