The Manor House.
This is an open-house-style of touring.

Mulled apple cider and homemade pumpkin loaf will be served! 
The fireplace will be burning brightly in the trophy room to add ambience to the occasion. 
Cost is $7 for adults.
This will be the last chance to tour the Manor House this year as we will close for the season at 4:00 pm.  Hope to see you and your friends and relatives at the Manor House!  You can help spread the word for us by telling your neighbours about this event!
3 ) For those with British ancestry the Yesterdays site ( link
below) has thousands of names of persons who appear on official documents as found in Derbyshire a central County of England.  A lot of those persons were either born or lived outside the County but for one reason or another were in Derbyshire and have their names recorded on varying documents.

A section on Law and Order lists all types of misdemeanours, whilst the Rogues and Vagabonds were whipped on their way to all parts of Britain.  Settlement Certificates and Examinations along with Removal Order may help locate where a person came from. Alternatively. if you have "lost" someone they may help you find where they went.

There are many other types of records listed, including Bastardy and Apprenticeships.
