Simonds Family website is live!

This website is devoted to archive material, so do not expect much ‘hot news’!

I will however try to use this page to announce significant updates and the loading of new archives and data, so that visitors can refer quickly and avoid searching through to see what may be ‘new’. I still have very extensive archives to review and load over time, including an extensive library of ‘Hop Leaf Gazette’ issues, historical family letters and some other family biographies.

I also hope to have contributions to add from visitors who may have relevant archive material to offer to the community.
