December 2011 brings me to the end of the first calendar year in which I have been creating this blog and filling it with data that I hope you readers are finding interesting and informative. The Roll of Honour is now complete up to the letter F and the war diary has also reached the end of the first calendar year in which 11th DLI were on the Western Front. The year 2012 will see me continue with this work in the same vein, as well as getting out and about to a variety of venues to publicise the book and talk to interested people. The first of these will be 1 February, when I will be introducing the members of the City of York Family History Society to the letters of Pte Robert Bennett and talking about how the book was created using methods common to family history researchers. Meanwhile – to all readers, regular, casual or accidental: Seasons Greetings!
