are very sad to announce that Gerald Majumdar passed away on July
6th, 2010 after a brief but courageous battle with cancer.
Welcome to my website
about my family history which includes the main surnames of Baynham,
Cale, James and Majumdar. I started my research in January 2005
and so far I have over seven hundred and fifty individuals in my
family tree and I'm adding more information on a regular basis.
The Baynhams are my
maternal grandfather's branch of the tree and originated around
Ross-on-Wye in Herefordshire. The Cales and James make up the main
part of my maternal grandmother's branch and are from Monmouthshire
in Wales. Finally the Majumdars are my father's branch for which
I have only a few members since he was born in India and I have
been unable to find many details.
I have discovered several
cousins through my research on the internet including Robert James
in Texas, Michele Tate in Nevada, Judy Harper and Graham Cale in
Canada, Graham James in Wales and Patricia Redmond in Hampshire
all of whom are interested in genealogy. They have provided me with
a lot of valuable information and many old photographs for which
I am very grateful.
Take a look at what
my surname Majumdar means below. Quite appropriate I think!
Thanks for visiting.
