It is jus a week now until the Warburton Event in London. It is being held in conjunction with a Family History Day for the members of New Horizons, our hosts for the day.
In that context my talks on Family History in the morning, and DNA and Family History in the afternoon, will be aimed at a general audience, but all my examples and stories will be based on my experiences with the Warburton One Name Study. I will also have lots of study outputs, including clan family trees, DNA charts, Newsletters, and materials on famous Warburtons that you can browse at your leisure.
There will also be computers available for research.
I hope to see some of you there, especially if Altrincham event in September is too far for you. It will be a chance to meet and discuss matters of mutual interest.
For information about the venue, including directions please use the following link to the New Horizons website.
This post is prompted by 3 recent developments. Firstly FamilyTreeDNA have announced a summer sale lasting the whole of August. Significant amongst the reductions is the Big Y test is being offered at $395. I plan to take advantage of this to fund another test within the Cheshire group.

1. I have not updated the SNP age estimates for the Lancashire and Cheshire groups for over a year. When I went to look at the latest numbers I was surprised to find a lot of the dates have moved back,…
I have made some updates to the Sandbach and Coppenhall Clans mainly from the obituaries sent me by Alan Jenks and a few resulting explorations. As a result of the obituaries and related research I do have information on a…
Every now and again Alan Jenks sends me Warburton obituaries from the Crewe Chronicle. They provide an interesting exercise in linking together the deceased with their various family mourners. Indeed although I have listed Crewe deaths under Parishes, I also…
The picture below was sent to me by John Warburton. It shows his great grandfather Thomas Warburton (on the right) with Sir Gilbert Greenhall, First Lord Daresbury, at the Warrington Horse Show. The origins of the Warrington Horse Show go…
