Donators Gallery Index

With grateful thanks acknowledging all contributors

Having gratefully received copies of old postcards, family albums and memorabilia covering a wide range of historic Huthwaite interests, most are directly donated by residents past and present, upon finding interest from readers near and far. All these magnificent scenes help reveal and better record many startling village changes while adding genealogy interests by portraying related family groups.

This Gallery Index recognises all named donators, offered in thanks of receiving all kinds of information. Diversely ranging from personal memories or small news clippings, to specialised knowledge about any related subjects or entire family albums tying other descendants. Even smallest snippets of data have proved helpfully enlightening. So I really would like to add your name here as a significant contributor who assisted in pictorially depicting village changes.

Side menu additionally acknowledges donators able to supply larger photographic collections. These may well mix topical subjects amid family portraits. While aiming to eventually include all among topical pages, they are collectively shown in Preview Albums as a way to ensure initial display. They also offer a reference in potentially raising other related interests and through your recognition to expand broader knowledge.

Facebook has since emerged as the latest form of social media. Members of a Sutton-in-Ashfield group do find a new wealth of historic photos. There's surely more to be discovered, perhaps including your own, and although these are indirectly shared, credit will whenever possible be given the identified original donator. Consideration has been given adding a specific Huthwaite group. But the additional work requiring regular monitoring would distract a personal long term commitment into wider reseach behind continually updating this well established Huthwaite-Online website. My studious preference retains contact via email.

Entrusted with archiving prized family photos and documented memorabilia, these marvellously depict so many lost Huthwaite scenes of nostalgic and historic interests. Eagerly listening too, but reaching beyond eldest villager memories, the broadening coverage into ancestral genealogy could start revealing several interlinked influential family surnames to further expand interest and local knowledge.
