I’d like to introduce…

Edward George "Ted" Turner

Edward George Turner, known affectionately to his family and friends as Ted, was a kind hearted, gregarious, right jolly English gent, loved by all who knew him. He was born on the 27th of June 1911 at Blake Cottage, Horn Street in Winslow, Buckinghamshire, where his father was employed as head groom to Mr Gosling of Blake House.

And His Lovely Wife…


Miss Phyllis Mary Collins, daughter of William Collins, publican of the George Inn in Winslow, which is where Ted met her one fateful day in the 1930s

Review of the Year So Far


I can’t believe March is here…where did the winter go? (The shortish answer is….we never really had winter, just an odd snow fall or two and a couple brisk weeks of temps in the teens….altogether VERY STRANGE for our little corner of Northwest Pennsylvania)

Genealogically speaking, time has flown. Although I made virtually NO progress on my personal research, I accomplished quite a bit:


  • National Institute for Genealogical Studies
  • I completed Methodology parts 2 &3; US Census Records; US Vital Records; US Migration Patterns; and Researching French Canadian Ancestors.
  • Today I started Methodology part 4; US Cemetery and Mortuary Records; and Analysis and Skills Mentoring Program 1
  • ProGen13
  • Last month we wrote research reports (looking forward to our chat tonight!!)
  • This month the focus is on Editing and Proofreading
  • NGSQ Study Group – I only participated in one chat so far, but I really enjoyed it. So much (…more)
