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.

GREAT NEW FEATURE
Here's something that I hope you will think is an exciting new feature on the blog. If you look over at the right hand column of this blog you will see a cartoon of a detective with a magnifying glass. Under this there is a heading that reads MORE TO SEE. Under that you will find the words THE BAYLISS FAMILY. click on those words and you will be taken to a chart that shows five generations of the Bayliss family. Hopefully this will help you find your way through the plethora of names I have to throw at you. More charts will follow on different branches of the family. Please understand that research is an on going process and the information on these charts may be updated as new information comes to light.
