Subject:Your web site

Hello there,

I discovered your web site today and I must confess I have found it fascinating; it is obvious to me that a great deal of time and effort has gone in to the setting up and maintenance of the site and it is a magnificent effort on the part of those concerned, past and present.

I have an interest in Goole as I believe that my Grandfather, Henry Spivey was born in Cowick, 15 September 1877, birth registered Goole December Qtr. 1877; he lived a lot of his life in Sykehouse where my mother Hilda Waterhouse (nee Spivey) was born; I was born in Batley, West Yorkshire, England, 1 January 1939 and emigrated to New Zealand in 1956. I remember some wonderful days spent in Sykehouse staying with my Grandfather, Uncles and Aunties.

All the very best to you and yours for Christmas and the New Year.

John Anthony Waterhouse
