Hugh Watkins, a blogger who wrote at Genealoge and many other blogs, passed away on December 29th. His obituary can be found here.
Oddly enough, his last post to the blog was on December 25th and reads:
"going to dial 999 and get freighted to heartlands hospital"
I enjoyed Hugh's posts with information and news about English genealogy interests and other genealogy items. While I never interacted with him directly, I will miss his tips on the news.
May he rest in peace.
