THERE ARE MANY NEW THINGS HAPPENING ON THE FAMILY PAGES.
-Check out the Holocaust Counter at the foot of the page

NEW POSTING PAGE HERE: www.coussins.org/post09.htm  send in your information and advice,
edits to be made and whatever will help the website become better for everyone.

SEE THE LINKS TO OTHER COUSSINS PAGES ON THIS PART OF THE WEBSITE AT THE FOOT OF THE PAGE.
COPY THESE AND ACCESS THEM ANYTIME FOR MORE INFORMATION. I WOULD ALSO SUGGEST THAT IN
CASE ANYTHING HAPPENS TO ME THAT YOU COPY OUT THE PAGES AND PRINT THEM WHEREVER POSSIBLE.
I AM GETTING OLD AND I WOULD NOT WANT YOU TO LOSE ANY OF THIS MATERIAL. SO PLEASE BE SAFE
WITH THIS IMPORTANT INFORMATION AND KEEP A COPY FOR YOUR OWN MISPOCHA..

 

 I have employed a professional web design company to make the site framework as it involves a lot of techniques
that I don't have access to. What they plan to do is make a framework page into which the info will  be placed.
The site will work like a directory and people can access different parts of the directory. However, due to the
confidential nature of the contents, the site will only be password accessed so each person will have to register
in order to access the full site in future. This is also to protect my investment of employing the many genealogists
who have put so much time into this project and that time is extremely costly. Their work should only be accessible
by Coussins and Simpson family members.

While  this wont cost Coussins and Simpson family members anything, (unless they want to offer a donation to the set
up and ongoing development costs of the site) they will still have to be registered in order to see anything on the new
website. This means that unless your a Coussins family member or a Simpson family member you wont have access.
 It is not possible to pass on the password you select to  anyone else unless you live in the same household as the
 password protect facility will only allow access from a particular computer unless you reregister on a different computer.
Please understand that this is for our own protection and to stop unwelcome access such as Spam, Trojan Horse virus
and other lovely internet terrors. The website will also have a forum and possible personal  access where the registered
 person can add  information to the web pages in the area that concerns themselves or their family line.

 
Yes its a lot of work but if someone does not do this when there are people like myself to bring this together
then the information will once more be lost in the mists of time. Now that we have children and some have
 grandchildren , I felt that spending the time and money doing this for the good of the
family was a worthwhile venture. I hope that I am not wrong and that the family will support the project.
You can also confirm that I am  doing the right thing by telling me as no input is depressing.
 
COUSSINS SECTION: Features  of the new site will be film of the family, recordings of their voices, including
Granma and Pappa, Harry and Pam and Mum and Dad. The early recordings of Raymond will also be on the
site along with extracts from his later work.

The Coussins section and the Simpson section will be quite different , again due to the diverse nature
of the backgrounds. Although saying that , we all came from a farming background.

 
The site will probably extend to around 160  pages at the end. The name of the new website is www.itsourfamily.co.uk

You can also  access pages on family stories and information here:
