Please tell us a little about yourself.
I'm married with a grown up family, and live in the York area. I work as an occupational therapist. I am also a lay preacher in a Methodist Church and regularly lead worship in the area.
What's your story about?
It was going to be about the life and work of my great grandfather, but it became more of a story of the links between us. It was triggered by a remarkable coincidence - but I did not really choose to tell this story - it sort of developed during the process.
What did you find the most rewarding aspect about the workshop?
The comaraderie and the opportunity to concentrate on one thing.
How has this workshop affected the way you look upon your family history?
It has helped me to see myself as a part of my family's history, rather than a "looker on"."
