WELCOME TO THE BAYLISS LINE. This blog has been created for my family. By "my family" I mean all those who are related to the Bayliss family either by blood, marriage or even relationship. There are, of course, other Bayliss families not related to us but this blog has at its heart a very specific family who had their origins in Gloucestershire. I am connected to that family because my mother was a Bayliss and it was her curiosity that started my research back in the early 1990's. So, what are you likely to see on this blog? Well, as it is a blog, I want it to be as entertaining as possible rather that a dry listing of facts (that is for Ancestry.com). I will, hopefully, be posting entries on our ancestors and relatives, on the places where they lived, and the historical times they lived through. I have an extensive collection of photographs of people and places which I will, of course, be sharing.

I'd like to ask anybody who reads this blog to give me some feedback. I'd really like this to be a two way thing. It sometimes unearths new information and, to be honest, it gives me encouragement. There will be two ways of providing feedback - either through the comment button (you will need a Google account for this) or via the e-mail address which appears on this page - alternatively, ring me. Now scroll down to read the latest entries.....and, of course, via Facebook.

 OOpps! I didn't give you feedback. I really like the colour, and fonts. As always you are very interesting and humourous in your writing. Love the photos. It will be good to get your replies to comments on the blog. I wonder why that isn't happening??

Thanks Sue, the feedback means a lot because unlike Facebook blogging can be a lonely business unless you get even a small amount of feedback so you know what you are doing is at least being read. I was in a cemetery in Leigh-on-Sea earlier today and quite unexpectedly stumbled on the grave of a man who sold a house to my step-gggrandmother!!! Just goes to show that you never know what you are going to mind - even when you are not looking for it!
