Bio and Links
Bio Photo Just passing through Wonderland! Looking for and remembering long lost ancestors! Thoughts through the looking glass as I wander through the archives. Looking back in time for the future.

"...if I don't make haste, I shall have to go back through the looking-glass...back into the old room-and there'd be an end of all my adventures!"

Sending my 'curiouser & curiouser' happy thoughts through the looking-glass.


Your Headstone stands among the rest,
Neglected and alone
The name and date are chiseled out
On polished, marble stone.

It reaches out to all who care
It is to late to mourn.
You did not know that I exist
You died long before I was born.

Yet each of us are cells of you
In flesh, in blood and bone.
Our hearts contract and beat a pulse
Entirely not are own.

Dear ancestor the place you filled
One hundred years or more ago
Spreads out among the ones you left
Who would have loved you so.

I wonder if you lived and loved,
I wonder if you knew
That someday I would find this place
And come to pay my respects to you.

Hello Julia

I just noticed while I was researching family that you have put flowers on the grave of John Neilson. John and James were my 6th cousins once removed. I would love to hear from you if your interested in talking... Kindest Regards, Jessi

RE: Tottenham Cemetery
sorry for the delay with the answer - we were away. It is long time since we visited the Tottenham cemetery but as you can see on the cemetery front page - it has a map by the entrance where you can locate the section you need to go to. Finding a grave might be a difficult task though - good luck to you. Try to contact the cemtery in advance - they might advise you on a day to come when somebody can assist.
Best regards
