Dennis Bill’s Family History
About Me & Birdwatching
About Me  -  Dennis Ian BILL I was born in a nursing home in Portsmouth but have spent all my life in Portchester, a large suburban village on the northern shore of Portsmouth Harbour. Other than a short spell in HM Dockyard, Portsmouth, immediately after leaving school, my 39½  years working life was spent with Ordnance Survey, Britain’s National Mapping Agency, in Southampton.  I have been researching my family history since taking early retirement in 2001. My research into two ancestors of my first cousins who were Royal Marines and subsequent research into The Crinoline Church (Skeletons) led me to spend many hours in the Royal Marines Museum at Eastney, Portsmouth.  As a result I became a volunteer there and for the last two and a half years I have been working one day a week there digitising and cataloguing the photo album collection.
My other hobby Birdwatching Click here for information about my birdwatching activities in Portsmouth Harbour.
“...I live in a constant endeavour to fence against the infirmities of ill health, and other evils of life, by mirth; being firmly persuaded that every time a man smiles - but much more so, when he laughs, it adds something to this Fragment of Life.” Laurence Sterne, 1713-1768 (Author of Tristram Shandy)
