Descendants of John & Mirabel Pask née Sparrow

Last year in early September we went to Bury St. Edmunds and met fellow researchers Dorothy Pask, Jo Pask, and Ray Alderton. We took with us a 19 foot family chart showing the descendants of John & Mirabel Pask née Sparrow.

We then went onto Hartest and met with the descendants of Ernest & Joan Pask née Kerry, including Chris Pask (visiting from New Zealand), David, Tessa, and Judith.

Next weekend, September 1-3, we have arranged to visit Jo again, and stay for a few days. As we are likely to meet up with several other Pasks, we thought it would be an ideal opportunity to update the chart. There has been considerable progress and the chart now contains an estimated 700 people.

During the weekend, together with a lot of help from Melanie Carter, who is the great-great-grand-daughter of Thomas & Hephzibah Maria Pask née Tyte, we have been putting the final touches to the chart. As mentioned in the blog Descendants of Edgar Richard & Lottie Elizabeth Pask née Taylor Update, Melanie has a wonderful collection of very early photographs. Although sadly there will not be space on the chart to include these superb photographs, they will be available on the website in the near future.

Tomorrow is the deadline for sending the chart to the printers (Genealogy Printers). Afterwards I will update the website.
