The West & Block Families of Thorpeness

In 2012 Emma Jackson, who was researching her family from Thorpeness, sent some photographs for the website asking whether anyone could identify unknown individuals. She's continuing her investigations, uncovering much more, and has contributed a potted partial family history and tree to the website. Thank you Emma.
