Web Manager and military enthusiast, Neil, was recruited by Forces War Records for his passion and knowledge of military history. Neil brings a wealth of knowledge when helping people find their military ancestors (part of the job he particularly relishes). Neil has been collecting military memorabilia since he was six years old, starting when his grandfather, a veteran soldier who served in the Middlesex Regiment in Burma during WW2, began taking his young grandson to car boot sales and museums to learn more about the history of the two World Wars. You can also see Neil in several of the Forces War Records online videos and case studies.

Linda has plotted a family history spreading back over many generations. Her family tree, so far goes back to 1700 with over 5,000 names on it and still growing. With a passionate love of family & Melksham history she joined as a volunteer to Wiltshire Online Parish Project where she is the OPC for Melksham, anything about Melksham town & people goes onto this website. From this she started helping Lisa Ellis at The Well House Collection which houses Melksham Museum, the two tie in nicely and she has been transcribing census and burial records from original source. She is also very involved with the social site - Historic Melksham, again family and old photographs enable her to contribute to this, as well as taking photographs of Melksham now, for Melksham people who now live all over the world.
