Here is a cross-index of people mentioned in the LowestoftHistory website. I'm often asked if I have anything about such-and-such person and there are simply too many to remember and so I hope this helps reseachers find people more easily. As I add ephemera to my collection and go through old postcards, I'll update this section.
This list includes, for those doing family history research, the recipients of postcards. The spellings are as given in the document and the decade after their name is the decade of the document, not the birth or death date of the person mentioned. I have included recipients in the listing even though most have no connection to Lowestoft in the off chance they are relatives of local people who have moved away.
Remember that people use different names and spellings (Jack, John, Jock might all be one person) and even more confusingly, have the same names as their contemporaries. When my husband was in the Army he was in a platoon with two other soldiers with the exact same name. One was white, one was black and one was Asian. Somehow they worked it out. I hope this list helps you work out your family and social research puzzles, too.
When I come across a name like "A. Smith" and in the same source find a reference to "A. B. Smith" I can't assume they are the same person. They could be cousins or a father and son who are working in the same business or they could be totally unrelated and so I will list them as different people until I find some other evidence that will prove they are one and the same person. This means that if you are looking for "A. Smith" and see several variations on the name in this website, it's wise to look up all of them.
Again, if you have any corrections, additions, or questions, please feel free to post them in the Discus section below each page or email me directly.
