So Owen arrived home last night for the first time since starting at University.
I saw him for long enough to recognise he’s happy, he’s grown a beard and he was wearing his Aber Comp-Sci sweatshirt. Then almost as soon as he’d arrived, two friends arrived to whisk him away.
Good to see you son!
It never rains but it pours as the saying goes – and this blog is like that. Nothing to say for months and then two items in one day.
Recently I have had contact from a “Christopher Reiderer” a descendant of my great-great grandparents (in other words Carl’s parents) but obviously one that took a different tack from ours. Between the two of us we have quite a comprehensive electronic front end to the family tree. His is using a graphically pretty service called ItsOurTree but is has some limitations that are stopping us merging his tree and mine together. However, he has shared some of the armorials he has come across / collected over the years, and these are presented below.

Late notice I know, but then lets at least put this site to some use shall we.
Martin, Sarah and family are in a re-run of Godspell. 10 years ago I (and my good friend Jeff) attended the first run of Godspell and even stayed the night at the family home. We thoroughly enjoyed our visit. Anyway, this year the drama group they belong to – Inter Church Productions – is staging an 10th anniversary celebration by re-running it and this time round the entire clan Martin are in the musical.
Performances are October 28th through to November 1st (half term week) at 7.45pm with a Saturday afternoon performance as well at 2.30pm. The venue is St Mary’s Parish Church in Thame and tickets are a maximum of £12.50. You can bookthrough, I guess, Martin and Sarah but I’m sure they’d prefer us to use the box office number of: 01844 354263
