Although written and constructed by Pete, the research published in this site has been a collaboration
between two 'sad old cousins' who would probably never have met had it not been for a mutual interest in GHOSTS.

Although the origins of JOUSIFFE  and the family tree had always interested me, it was not until I was in my early 30s that I decided to do something about it.  My paternal grandfather had passed away many years before and so I turned to my Father and Grandmother for assistance.

  At first my grandmother LILY' was not at all sure that family history was a suitable way to spend ones time and money, especially when it wasn't her side of the family (Summers) that I had started to research.  Never the less, once interrogated for information she revealed many interesting tit bits.

Unfortunately, being particularly pig headed I chose to dismiss much of what she told me as the 'ramblings of an old woman'.  It was much to my shame that a few years after her death I found that many of her 'ramblings' were in fact, FACT.

 I met Kay after contacting her uncle Bob (my grandfathers nephew).  He had been in contact with my Gran and was the first person, outside of the immediate family, that I spoke to about the past.  He told me that his niece also had an interest in the family tree.  Since then she has been a constant source of inspiration and encouragement.  The rest, as they say, is history.
