The Havering Witness wishes all Labour Party and Trade Union members a very happy New Year. We would also like to mention that if you are stuck for a New Year resolution and, if you don't already know it, you might consider making sure you know your family history in 2018 and beyond.
Knowing and memorising the historically significant parts of your own family history will help greatly in the general effort to keep Tory Snoopers out. You can approach family history in a number of ways. For the purposes of keeping Tory Snoopers at bay we would recommend that you give priority to any connections your family has with historically and sociologically significant events and periods.
As an example we have listed some of the issues that became significant in our own family history, these are the type of questions that arose in protecting our own family history from the Tory Snoopers - we hope it gives someone starting out an idea of the style of research we found most useful and the results kept for our own private records.
Is there any connection to the City of London or other major cities ? Is the family mainly Protestant or Catholic ? Yorkist or Lancastrian ? Arrived in Britain before or after the Norman Conquest ? Which European countries did your family emigrate to Britain from ? Do you have any family connections to any significant organisations ? Do you have any family connection to historically significant events such as famous battles ? What was your family's connection to the English Civil War ? Is there a history of Trade Union membership ? We have a connection to Thetford, Norfolk which is the birth place of the great republican thinker Tom Paine !

Romford's football ground "Brooklands" was also at the centre of many serious corruption allegations, the ground was closed and is now a housing estate. Recently the family of a former manager of Romford FC, Dave Bickles, were presented with a copy of his first managerial contract awarded 41 years ago !
So, if you are stuck for a New Year Resolution, then please consider researching your family history and keep a step ahead of the tory snoopers in 2018 and beyond. Happy New Year !
