Geoff 's ancestral who's who ?
10th anniversary issue
Most of what I declare in this website is what I have discovered since retiring from my career job. Over 60 years ago my paternal grandmother did her utmost to focus my attention on two distinct romances.  The first was that an ancestor had delivered a locomotive engine to Russia, the first ever to run in that country; and the second was about her presence in Stockport and Didsbury as Mr Daniel Adamson arrived home from London having masterminded the success of the Bill of Parliament which facilitated the construction of the Manchester Ship Canal.
Now please consider the list of notable people below then go to my  Tree diagram from which my connections to those people may be deduced.
