[16 DEC 98] GREETINGS FROM WORTHING
I am a Worthing Sixth Form College student who has a big
interest in Coventry as most of my mum's side of the family live in Holbrooks.
Both my sister and I were born at Walsgrave Hospital. I
have now lived in Worthing for 10 years and only come up to Coventry very occasionally. I
would just like to say that your website is very intresting and your web cams are good
because I can see and recognise places I know.
Thank you very much for your time.

[13 DEC 98] JAMES ANSTEY
James Anstey was my grandfather, who was a watch case
maker. He died in the 1930, living with his daughter Edith, who married Tom Enstone.
I would like to know more about him and his ancestors;
making local enquiries is difficult, since I live in Dorset. Have you any information, or
can you suggest any sources, particularly those accessible over the Internet? I would be

[06 DEC 98] ANOTHER EX COVENTRY KID - BOB ROGERS
My husband grew up in Coventry and most of his family are
still there but I am having a lot of trouble researching his Mum's side of the family. Her
surname was Elkington and she grew up around Tile Hill.
My husband's grandparents were William Rogers and Nellie
Freeman, George Elkington and Edith Dawson. Another associated family name was Nixon. If
anyone can help with the research, it would be lovely to hear from them.
My husband's name is Bob Rogers and he grew up in Stoke
Aldermoor, (182 Whitworth Ave) attending Aldermoor Farm Primary around 1956-1961 and Stoke
Secondary Modern from around 1961-1965.
We'd love to hear from anyone who remembers him, especially
Martin Paul Newport (alias Bill), whose dad (Bert) was caretaker at Radford Territorial
Army Base in Radford Road around 1965.
We live in Australia now but would love to visit Coventry
again one day. It's over 30 years since we left. It's been wonderful to look through all
the old messages and see so many familiar place names, what a great web site!
