Family Tree now online

by Barry

Posted 22-Jul-2015

I have added a family tree for the Leigh, Goldblatt and Margolin families. I hope that some of you will contact me and add details so that it can be relatively complete.

Previously Melissa Wender had put the Margolin family on Geni. On meeting some cousins from the US I realised that I didn't know how they were related. Surprisingly my mother had written down many of the details in her book which my sister and I published for her 80'th birthday. I have added some of the Goldblatt family and have added some of the Leigh family. The Margolin and Goldblatt families are my mother's family. Her mother was a Margolin and her father's mother was a Goldblatt. My father's family is the Leigh family and hopefully this will increase as I get further details. I have now added these details onto a program called WebTrees which resides on my server and is both encrypted and accessed only to registered users. The login details are additional to the login details for this site.

Life Drawing
When I came back to do artwork after many years of working as I did as a Chartered Accountant both in the City and also running a public company I started life drawing. I then went back to do foundation, a degree in printmaking and then a masters and my artwork was primary printmaking.

My artwork - where is it going
I have had problems for a couple of years after an illness and bad back made it difficult to stand and cope with the weight of screen printing. Glass is very heavy and I badly damaged my back on a large piece of glass which remained for ages in the kiln.

Barry's new artwork
My current artwork has mainly been generated on the computer. In truth my artwork has been going through a bad time and I haven't produced much. For years I tended to use a combination of hand drawn and computer drawn artwork. This has matured in doing much more using the computer and tablet.
