Lancashire places and history
- Ralph Rooney - an extract from a booklet by Ralph Rooney who was born in Tottington in the mid-1880s. He lived at Boardman's for some time. There are interesting descriptions of late 19th/early 20th Century life in the region where my great, great, grandfather was probably born.
- Boardmans - home to
my great, great, great grandfather and his family, a beautiful place to stay
if you are researching family history in this area of Lancashire. Read Ralph
Rooney's descriptions of the area!
- Lancashire Coal Mining History -
web site by Jack Nadin dedicated to Lancashire Coal mining history but
with annoying pop up adverts!
- Burnley - Jack Nadin's web
site dedicated to Burnley. A very informative web site but those
pop up adverts are very annoying!
- A Chronology of Burnley -
again by Jack Nadin I think.
- Burnley Street Maps
Old Maps - maps of Lancashire dating from 1579. If only I could trace
a few ancestors back that far!
- The home page of Tottington Village - Bury, Lancashire, England
- Bolton.org.uk -
a interesting web site covering the Bolton district with lots of photos.
