The branches of the Midgley
family are spread far and wide across the globe. I have received so much
from Midgley's in former British Empire countries and far flung
parts of the Commonwealth that I thought I would put it all on pages, where
we that are interested, can connect to it. The name may be impressed
onto every continent, there is even a reference to it in Antarctica.
A Midgley has not yet reached the moon, although my son had his
name on a CD aboard a "Martian lander" which burnt up on entry into
the Martian atmosphere early in 1999. Somewhere there, in carbonised or
digitised space, lies the name Midgley! Does this count?
So all you expatriates, descendants of lads and lasses of Yorkshire
get out those old notes you had stuffed at the back of a filing cabinet
and lets get connected.
If you have anything you wish to add to the pages you may email
and the text will be faithfully copied (providing it's legal of course),
if you have your own pages, I will gladly link to you.
