For what reason did you start genealogy research?
I have always had a great love of family and history, I guess the stories my grandmother used to tell got me interested in my ancestry, researching for me has become an addiction, I also love to look at social history and document as much as I can from many different types of records and newspapers, I love to write and have been able to tell some of their stories in poetry form just to make it a little more interesting
Thanks so much for all the info that you sent through. I was happy to receive it. I have a lot of this information already so I guess what I was hoping would happen was that there would be someone around who had some family history for these families. I know that I am extrmely lucky as there is so much already written about Diana and her family....but I just want more. Thanks again for what you sent through. P
There are only two names of trades which have been adopted by English Gypsies as proper names, Cooper and Smith: these names are expressed in the English Gypsy dialect by Vardo-mescro and Petulengro. The first of these renderings is by no means a satisfactory one, as Vardo-mescro means a cartwright, or rather a carter. To speak the truth, it would be next to impossible to render the word 'cooper' into English Gypsy, or indeed into Gypsy of any kind; a cooper, according to the common acceptation of the word, is one who makes pails, tubs, and barrels, but there are no words in Gypsy for such vessels. The Transylvanian Gypsies call a cooper a bedra-kero or pail-maker, but bedra is not Gypsy, but Hungarian, and the English Gypsies might with equal propriety call a cooper a pail-engro. On the whole the English Gypsies did their best when they rendered 'cooper' into their language by the word for 'cartwright.'
