1998 Warwick & York England
A class reunion of my students from the year I taught at the School of Social Work at the Birmingham Polytechnic brought me once again to England. I combined this trip with a "roots" excursion into York and the surrounding towns looking for my ancestors. I visited the towns of Malton, Knapton, Hunmanby, and Rillington. My ancestors were throughout this area as yeomen (farmers), and a teacher. My direct ancestors immigrated to Rawdon, Quebec in 1820 where they established a homestead. Before going North I visited my favorite castle: Warwick and spent a day there.
