  • Does anyone know or have heard of a Bill Presley, stationed at bovingdon airforce base, Hemel Hempstead, Herts, during the 2nd world war. he may have been in the USAF softball match in 1943, he could have known a Veronica McConville.

  • Hey, tomorrow Saturday September 17th sees the official launch of the “Our Dacorum” website at the Marlowes Shopping Centre, Hemel Hempstead (near to Evans ladies clothes shop) between 10am – 4pm. If you would like to come along and meet the volunteers and staff involved with Our Dacorum and find out more we would love to see you! There will also be an opportunity for you leave your own stories or even to record your own memories via the oral recording booths (if you are feeling brave enough!!) which will be available on the day.

  • Hi, I moved to Ireland some years ago and have been researching my ancestors. I’ve just discovered that my 3rd G grandfather was Daniel Priest who was deported on a convict ship to Tasmania after being given a life sentence for stealing a sheep. I have also discovered that the whole family were farriers and blacksmiths along the Union Canal with public houses; the Rose & Crown and the Three Horseshoes. Hannah Priest, the wife of Richard born in 1800, was shown as being a master blacksmith anf many of the women were straw plaiters. Is there any way that I may find out further information about the Priest family from the Hertfordshire Memories Network please? I’m finding myself totally absorbed by the history and will certainly visit on my next trip to the UK. I really appreciate the work that is being done particularly that I find a growing interest in this kind of geneology research Kind regards Jean Reidy
