Are You an Online Jigsaw Addict?



During lockdown online jigsaws have become quite popular and so I have decided that I will create a series of jigsaws related to Cheshire


I will be posting a new jigsaw on the FHSC social media pages everyday, so please pop along & follow the Facebook or Twitter feeds [links below] and join in the fun!


There is also a lot more to see on the Society Social Media pages so it's worth following for updates on various blogs, news of free online talks & lectures, what's new on the major genealogy websites with my FridayRoundup and Archive of the Week on a Saturday & lots lots more

The Story of Kelsall

~The Story of Kelsall by Elspeth Thomas~

[with thanks to our friends at the Kelsall Family History Group for news of this]


Local historian and Kelsall resident Mrs Elspeth Thomas for many years researched the history of Kelsall.

Sadly, she died before it was finished and so members of the Kelsall & District Rural Amenties Society [KADRAS] completed & published it in c1996.


This book can now be viewed online via the Kelsall Village website.
