25 Mar 2013 - amendments

Disentangling two contemporary Wakely families living in the same village where husband and wife shared the same name and the husband's father's name was the same has provided the opportunity to explore the links between the Wakely's and their associated families (from Mosterton down to the coast and across to the Dorset border and beyond) with the Hann's and theirs. The Morgan's who originate around Axminster in Devon also have a number of links with the Dalwood Hann's so these too have been further developed.

The Hangers from Weymouth, the Moores of the baking/milling dynasty of Whitchurch Canonicorum parish and the Woolmington's of Stoford in Barwick, Somerset all share either Hann ancestors or spouses or are related to Stoke Abbott families with whom the Hann's have family links.  The Woolmington's are also related to the Bridport Hann sub-branch

Family trees - Major work started on on-going standardisation of records for large urban areas.  Identification of addresses to enable these to also be recorded under current administrative 'county' then parish rather than postal address or possible area name - part of Greater London, Greater Manchester, Plymouth, Torbay, West Midlands and Abertawe (Swansea) to be completed.  Also updates and amendments to existing records and general tidying up including corrections of results of known 'finger trouble'.
