Mainly because it was the name of Sidney's autobiography, but also because it possibly reflects where we came from and where we may return to.
The sections for Dennis and Sidney currently reflect what was said when they died, as well as showing some photographs of them.
The most recent additions to the site is the are for James Frederick Bear who was a Conscientious Objector during World War 1 and because of this was imprisoned in Dartmoor. Please see Bear page for more details.
Other family members currently feature in a more minor way within the site, some are represented more fully through their own websites, where this is the case links are provided to the site.
The sections for all those mentioned above will be further developed over the coming years, priority for 1916 is to add further to the section for James Frederick Bear.
