Something of Interest: New Theme – On The Street Where They Lived


As I celebrate my first year with today’s blogiversary, I have decided to use this celebration to announce a new topic theme I am adding here.

I have been thinking about it for a while and so have decided that I will do an On The Street Where They Lived topic.  I have some photos of ancestor’s homes and in many cases some full addresses are given on the Censuses and together with Google’s StreetView I can see and show at least the road where some ancestors lived, even if I don’t know the exact address.  It will be interesting to see how the homes have survived, or been altered, or have just disappeared!

I shall do the first post for this theme after I publish this post.  I hope it will be of interest to those popping in.  🙂



  1. What a great idea!

    • Hallo Julie, Thanks for your comment about this new theme. I had the idea a while ago, so have been trying to gather pics of homes of my ancestors and/or picking them out with Google’s StreetView. I thought it would make a series with a slight difference and in some cases it will be good to compare then and now with this topic.

      Kind regards,
