The new website is under construction but here is the base from which we started

The Future Website

Building a new website: A few words from Craig

I decided that the old website is difficult and while full of features it can be difficult to navigate. I have commissioned the original designer to come up with an alternative site and one that is easy to navigate with trees that are easy to read and download. Unfortunately this will take time but hopefully will be completed by mid 2009. Meantime the site is still there and access to the pages should now be clear of restrictions.  adding photographs of family members at each stage and the sound bites and videos for each family member as we come into the latter part of the 20th century. Fortunately my father, Jack, was a cine photographer and he took films of most of his family to Louis and Leba (Rebecca) his parents to cousins and other relatives which is a blessing for their families as well. What we may find is that other family members took cine film , audio tape or videos as well as the century progressed and we can add these in.

To summarise:

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 by sending in photographs, information and links to what we are all about..
You can also confirm to Philip and myself that we are  doing the right thing by telling us as no input is depressing.
Louis Coussins family: Features  of the new site will be film of the family, recordings of their voices, including Grandma Rebecca-Leba and Pappa-Louis -Libish,  and Jack and Sarah. The early musical recordings of Raymond will also be on the site along with extracts from his later work.
