BLack country connections news

Postby Northern Lass » Sat Aug 10, 2019 7:22 am

Morning everyone
This is just to let you know that as of now Jo aka grangers 14 will be running BCC aka Black Country connections.
I am stepping Down from running it..and stepping up on life!
Jo has been running it with me for about the last 10 years and pretty much on her own for the past year.
So it is time for a new custodian.
I want to thank her for all her help over those years and I wish her all the best for the future
She will I am sure run it brilliantly.
Thank you Jo xx

Thanks to all the friends I have met along the way.
I am still on the forum and once I get my computer sorted will be back to researching..need to hit the DNA trail.
life sometimes gets in the way doesn't it!

Thanks again Jan aka NL xx

Every once in a while, you meet a person that you instantly click with and you’re definitely one of those people.
I’m so happy that we got to spend the time we did together. Enjoy your new found freedom Jan :wink:

You couldn't have handed over to a better person than Jo, she'll do the business!

I vividly remember that particular day at Dudley Archives Jan when you mentioned to me that you'd got this idea of starting up a web site so that all Black Country families could be connected up in some way. That was the beginning of Black Country Connections and who would ever have thought that after 11 years the site is going from strength to strength.

Congratulations to Jan and Jo for making this idea actually happen.

Good Luck Jan in whatever you do and get that computer fixed. xx

Thanks so much for all the really nice comments :oops:

I must just say that without cousin Kate aka gardener Black Country connections would never have
Been born.
Kate set it up with me and her expertise and knowledge helped me a complete novice.
Can I also thank San aka mallosa and Kay Kdw, Annie and Rob people who helped with bcc
At different times.
And all those that have helped with info and verifying stuff.
Thank you.

A brilliant team effort. :clap:

And it is now in the hands of a great lady who will look after it for us all
