You may find that the information you are looking for is already displayed on the site. There are over 150 pages of Hale information displayed here, so use the Search box above to check through the site.

Good luck with your family history research!

I am currently developing a companion site to The Hale Connection which will contain high quality scans of city maps and plans. The focus is on London maps and also on Adelaide, South Australia, where my ancestors arrived in 1879. The site will be a great research aid, and hopefully will not take me away from this site for any great length of time.

Initially there will be three maps on the site. Follow this link if you would like a sneak preview of Cross's New Plan Of London 1850:

Finally, I realise that I still have numerous unanswered emails from late 2005. Please bear with me... I will be replying to these soon.

Happy New Year to you all!

You may be interested to know that the site has had 609 hits since December 21... that's about 61 hits a day, compared to the average of 4 hits a day since the site opened in 1999. I assume that people are interested in the new design?

With soaring temperatures here in South Australia (it was 43C here on December 30!) I have been staying indoors quite close to the air-conditioner, doing a lot of behind-the-scenes work on the website. It is all 'boring stuff' to do with the site structure and code, but it all improves the way the site runs and is administered.

I do apologise if you contacted me during 2005 and have not yet received a reply. The website redesign took up a lot of my spare time, but things are looking better for 2006. I am working through all of my unanswered emails from last year, and now have only 40 messages left to respond to! Many of these require research assistance or website updates, so it will still take a little while to catch up. Thank you for your patience.

Best wishes for a healthy, happy and safe year to come.
