Dear Friends, Followers & occasional Visitors,
I wish you all a 2018 full of the things you love most.
On my side, I have a new computer: an important ingredient to keep the WM site going! Now what I need is a little bit of time, to catch up with all the updates that arre long due. With little Vicky (my granddaughter) going to school, I just might to manage some spare time I can use to this purpose.
January's Postbag is now up-to-date, and (working backwards, Dec 2017 is on its way.
May I point out an email (received last December, but only today posted on WM) from Robert (Bob) Edward Yoxen: he's hoping to contact some old schoolmates from Joseph Barrett Secondary. Read his appeal here and please try to help..! 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 email@example.com.
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.
