About this site

Red rose of Lancashire


thelancashireman.org is the private homepage of David Haworth. My e-mail address for comments, complaints, praise, spam etc. is

delta alpha victor echo at foxtrot echo november dash november echo tango dot delta echo

That's a dash (or hyphen) between the two novembers, not an underscore. If you don't know the phonetic alphabet, well, I'm sure you can work it out.

I'm not afraid of receiving e-mail from strangers, and I especially like encrypted e-mails, even better if they are signed by the sender. My public key is available here.

The information in the family history pages has been culled from sources too numerous to mention, but I'd like to pick out a few for special thanks:

and of course the countless others who place snippets of information on the internet in case it might be of use to someone. Genealogists the world over owe a lot to you.
