  Comments Interesting site! I just learned my great-grandfather (Walter Jackson) left Wigan with his four brothers in the early 1900s... this spurred by curiousity in Wigan.

Hopefully, I can visit one day!

  Comments My mother was from Wigan. My dad met her there during WWII. I lived there for three years while my dad was stationed near there in 1959 after my mother died. Her name was May Langton. My brother and I lived with her sister & grandmother on Alfred St. We made many great friends there. Would love to hear from some of them. Derek Jolly, John Hindley and many more but have forgotten their names. I love Wigan and England. I will definately be back to visit web site. Great job.

  Comments Tracing my family history, my father and all his forebears hail from the Wigan area.

A great site but please can we have a search facility? Trawling though all this to find family references is impossible.

But ... Keep up the great work!
