Except I am not being very organised about it and keep hopping off into interesting byeways such as scrolling through part of the 1901 census for Crowland to see if there are any Peppers and Slators I've not come across before. Naturally there are several though they've brought me no nearer finding my great grandmother Sarah Jane Slator. I'm beginning to think she may have gone to America. Some of the Slators from a couple of generations before her seem to have done so.
I've also found someone who was the President of the Chamber of Commerce in St Albans during World War I - a Mr W Fisk - whose parents ran a drapers shop there. These are not my direct ancestors but one of the offshoots from several generations back who are just as intriguing as my immediate relatives. There is also someone - an accountant - who appears to have been in prison in Liverpool in 1844!
It's amazing how much time can be taken up browsing online records and I'm really still only scratching the surface. I'm trying to build up a skeleton - as it were - and then filling in the details later.
