First Hidden Whistle

If you wish to comment on anything in this website you will need to provide a name and email address, but otherwise you are free to explore the site anonymously.

You can provide a general comment in the Guest Book (this will be seen by others who visit the website), or by using the Contact form (this is more private, and is also a way to let me have any photos, articles or other information).

You can provide a more specific comment on a post or page using the comment form below the post or page (if there is one). Note that this will be seen by others who visit the website.

You can provide a more specific comment on a Person within the TNG part of the site using the "Suggest" tab. Information on which individual you are referencing is automatically attached to the message when you make a suggestion this way. This is not seen by other visitors to the site, but I will add any appropriate information to the offline database, and thence to the website when it is next updated.

CakeAnother way to provide feedback or new information etc. is to come to Chatters in Needingworth Village Hall on Thursday afternoons (1.30-3.30), where Peter is usually to be found helping people with computer issues, as well as chatting about history. Why not come and have a cup of tea or coffee, and maybe treat yourself to a piece of cake as well!

However you do it, I look forward to hearing from you.

Generally, with a toggle you can alternate back and forth between two states by clicking the same button. We use toggles in this website to enable content to be alternately hidden and revealed, and they are usually indicated by .

A one-place study (OPS) considers people and families in their physical and social context in any location across the globe.

By learning about your ancestors’ neighbours and studying the historical environment and events that took place within a village, you can gain a greater understanding of your own genealogy. An OPS researches the residents of a particular place by gathering a full range of historical records, memorabilia and stories that mention those individuals, and analyse them to gain insights into the social and economic workings of that place.
