Now officially a member of GOONS! What's that, you ask?

The Guild of One Name Studies is a genealogical society where a name is registered and studied for all its occurrences worldwide. After many years of collecting additional HASKELL data it was time to spread my wings.

In February 1854, the 93rd Sutherland Highlanders Regiment departed Plymouth for the Crimea where they fought at Alma, Sebastapol and Balaklava. Corporal James Gow was awarded the Distinguished Conduct Medal for valour on "The Thin Red Line" at the port of Balaklava in October 1854...
James Gow also earned the Crimean War Medal with Balaklava clasp and the Indian Mutiny Medal with Lucknow clasp for his later service in India...He was killed on the last day of fighting at the Begum Khoti which secured Lucknow for the British. James Gow was buried with his fallen companions near the Dilkoosha Palace.

My husband is descended from Robert Haskell b 1693 of Lyndhurst, Hamphire, England. Because of all the research I have collected over many years I began my website which has now become a one-name study. You have a great Haskell Heritage! Two separate lines, Wow.

It's been over a decade since the Town of Liberty voted to support legislation to prohibit the use of jet skis on Lake St. George, but that hasn't stopped local resident Mark Haskell from waging a tireless, one-man campaign to overturn the ban. And now Haskell has received support from Governor Paul LePage, who has agreed to submit legislation to allow Haskell to legally take his jet ski on the lake.

Since 2005, the 60-year-old retired photographer has been cited four times for defying the ban and challenged it as far as the State Supreme Judicial Court, where the law was upheld. According to Haskell, jet skis (also known as personal watercraft or "PWCs") are no different than other kinds of allowable boats that have the same propulsion system. He says jet skis have been unfairly targeted due to the irresponsible actions of a few. However, according the Citizens' Association of Liberty Lakes (CALL) and the Town of Liberty, which supported the 2003 legislation to enact the ban, the speed and maneuverability of jet skis, along with the irregularity of the shape of the lake, present safety concerns.

While Haskell's persistent use of his jet ski has been a headache for many lake residents, he says his actions are an act of civil disobedience against a discriminatory law, or as he puts it, "government bullshit.".... read more

MISSING FRIENDS- The Argus (Melbourne) Wednesday 12 July 1854- Trove
" Alfred Haskell, per ship Emigrant, from Liverpool will hear of his sister, Mrs. Cope, by writing to Samuel Cope, tailor, 56 Hendley street, Adelaide "

The above solved a mystery as to what happened to my husband's g grandfather's sister who I had recorded as deceased for many years!
It opened up a whole new line of Aussie cousins for him. 

Trove is a wonderful free digitised Newspaper resource.
