Dear Friends, Followers & occasional Visitors,
Would you believe it? I'm still trying to catch up with some (old) emails that haven't made it to the postbag: it is a time-taking process, because each single email has to be edited to the appropriate format. In addition, I receive over 100 spam emails per day, in spite of my antispam software! I still have to rake through them too, since not seldom 'good' emails are dropped in the spam folder...
Some good news: my cat "Maicol" has fully recovered from a bad infection to an eye!
As always, any comments and suggestions from you are most welcome but don't forget to share your memories and pictures!
Enjoy browsing your site & kindest regards
... to a website dedicated to recording the memories of those who were born, arrived, lived, worked or died in Walthamstow, formerly an Urban District,
then a Municipal Borough in Essex, now part of the London Borough of Waltham Forest.
This site stores people's memories but also acts as a bulletin-board service listing the numerous emails we receive - seeking help with everything from family research to "Do your remember... ?"
We list received emails with an email link to the sender. We will try to answer any queries, if we can, but in most instances we simply do not know the answers to the questions we receive - but... you never know who might!
Scroll down for more info on how this website works and what it contains.
Yes, all human existence is here - provided its roots lie in Walthamstow - lost but not forgotten!
Send your emails to the editor, Daniel Quinn at firstname.lastname@example.org.
If anybody else would like to join us then please get in touch - there is always plenty to do!

For those visiting this site for the first time, we suggest starting from the FAQ Page, which contains useful guidance.
Then you might like browsing the personal recollections and stories sent in by our visitors, often past residents of this London suburb, that was once part of ssex: the "Memories" tag on the menu at the top of this page will guide you there.
If you are 'digging your roots', the "Family History" section contains emails we received, grouped by Surname.
Our "Postbags" contain all the emails we have received up to now, conveniently arranged by years
The "Personal Stories" section is an archive of stories and photographs about institutions, local traders, places and historic events that form the history of Walthamstow and the surrounding area.
For those interested in music groups, the section "Local Bands" will delight you!
Please feel free to email any material on Walthamstow - we will always try to feature it.
