“L’Angleterre est une nation de boutiquiers.” ~ Napoleon

Welcome to the May issue of FTF Magazine which is looking at member’s shop keeping and business owning ancestors. In addition, Muggins in Sussex describes the occupation and liberation of Jersey.

The vast majority of images in this issue have been donated by FTF members and the magazine team would like to take this opportunity to thank all those contributors, as well as the authors of the articles, whose efforts all go to make the magazine a great success!

In this issue, we also take a look at member’s ‘Family Treasures’ – possessions passed down through the generations into the hands of a keen family history researcher! Three members tell us the stories behind their family heirlooms. More of these stories will follow in next month’s issue.
