For many years Barbara Bradley has collected information on Grewelthorpe and in particular family history and school history. She is has been beavering away to put as much of this information on this site so that it is available for people tracing their family history. Her genealogy section is one of the most visited areas of the site and we are regularly contacted by people who are building their own family tree.
The Village web site is set up so that many people can contribute to the project. There is a private section of the site that allows users to write and edit their own pages and upload images. We need more people to get involved either in an ongoing sort of way or just with a single article or picture.
