Great page. I am also a lover of all things Cornish and have spent many happy
hours in the county from 5/6 years old right up to last summer, and guess what?
along with half of the British Isles we will be staging another invasion this
year to see the eclipse. I am fortunate to have friends in both Camborne and
Padstow. Well that's enough waffle from me. Keep up the good work and I'll proudly
fly the black and white flag on my car.

Blight is my birth surname and is Cornish. I am a 5th generation Cornish
Australian, my ancestors arriving in South Australia on the Lisander, in 1851. The Blight family mainly originated from St Ives. I am a member of the Cornish
Association of the ACT (Australian Capital Territory). My late father was the
celebrated Australian poet John Blight. I recently changed my surname by deed
poll and added the new surname of Chagall, my own choice, after the French
painter Marc Chagall. I feel that the Cornish spirit is so diverse, courageous,
adventurous and above all, free! Otherwise why would so many of our ancestors
left their homeland to venture forth into a world of uncertainties and dangers
to forge new nations?! Good on us the Cornish! http://firstname.lastname@example.org

Hello there! I am 16 years old, and I was born in Treliske hospital, Truro. I've
been living in and around Truro all my life. There are some things I learnt from
this site that I never knew before- such as the Cornish jokes, now they ARE good
'uns. Anyway, I feel proud to be from This beloved county, which was once (and
still should be) a country in its own right. Greetings, and good bye from
Cornwall, the one and only.

Nicola Hodgson (Richards) in LONDON at 23:48:7 Tuesday December 15 98
Still a great site! Does anyone know the origins of a cornish pudding called
Russian Cream? Many of my parents' 'older' friends make it and we wondered what
the Russian connection was, if any. Merry Christmas Alan, and keep up the good
work in the New Year.

Interesting site. Following Cornish links is fascinating and the call of the
place is quite amazing if you happen to hail from there. I think I'm the same
age as you (Penzance Grammar then Cornwall tech until 1961)and I still think of
"going home" one day. Meantime I,ve booked my place for the eclipse! -
at my mothers place in Carbis bay.

Well Done Alan. I am interested in Cornwall because my Great grandfather, John
Jacka came to the U.S.from his home in St. Buryan in the 1860's to work in the
mines of Pennsylvania until he could buy a farm. Some of the Jacka's came to
U.S. and some went to Australia. I hope to visit someday.

Great pages! As a member of both the St David's Society of Montreal and the
Welsh Male Choir I have set up 2 web sites for these groups soon to be running
and my own personnal page. I am, on my own site concentrating on Brythonic
Celtic peoples, places and things. I would like to point towards your site as
one of the Cornish links. Although I am new at building web pages and things may
appear a little primative compared to pages such as yours, I think that it is
still a good resource and in due time I will master a more complex page.Once
again a well designed site. www.securenet.net/members/swatkins/index.html

My interest in Cornwall is because my grandmother, Minnie Francis, was born in
Callington, Cornwall. Her father was killed in the mines and she came to USA to
New York, thence to Massachusetts when she was four years old. I hope to come to
Cornwall someday. Just discovered your site, enjoyed the photographs, and I will
