Web History Directory for the Kelsall Victorian History

Early History

Date Topic Detail
01 Jan 2001 Kelsall in the 21st Century Whilst I write about Victorian Kelsall, the folks in Kelsall are actually charting out their own heritage in "real time". Check out the Kelsall Community's very own web site" This is a wonderful site that depicts Kelsall as it is today.
01 Jan 2001 Victorian religion This is a general essay that discusses some general perceptions about organised religion in Victorian Britain. Whilst the essay is very general in nature, there are aspects that will apply to Victorian Religion in Kelsall, though not in any specific sense. Victorian Kelsall had both nonconformist and Anglican followings, though if there was a Catholic following it did not appear to be openly practiced in Kelsall.

20 August 1999 Recommended Books & Directory of Files that you can download I have over 100 books on family history and social history research, so it seems logical to praise those I like and use regularly, and perhaps comment on those which have proven to be less useful for me.
