Francis Gammon (b.1899) Page Added — Ross Gammon’s Family History Website

Over the last few months, when I had the chance, I tidied up my Grandfather and Grandmother’s data in my Gramps Family Tree database. Today, I managed to finish the page for my Grandad, Francis Gammon (b. 1899). Most of the early information about my grandparents comes from the Government Record Office (GRO) in England…

Welcome to my new Jekyll based Family History website! — Ross Gammon’s Family History Website

A long time ago, when I was using Windows and busy researching my Family History, I created this website using a product called Netobjects Fusion. Back in 2010, I switched to using Linux and was no longer able to edit the website. Finally, I have converted the website to Jekyll. This allows me to edit…

London – April 2016

Last weekend, we took a long weekend in London. I did a work trip in Hitchin on the Friday whilst Antje and Alexander did some site seeing. I caught up with Pat McFadden and John Alexander (old colleagues/friends) at the Fullers pub at Kings Cross. It was great to reminisce and find out what all my other old colleagues were up to as well.

We worked out that it had been more than 10 years since we last had a beer together. It will not be that long before the next one (I hope)!

What else have I done over the last year?

Continuing with my theme in the last couple of posts on Open Source Stuff, I thought I would now write about all the other stuff I did last year.

Easter 2015 was spent as most years are: in Neudorf, Germany.


In May we visited the Zoological Museum in Copenhagen and made a display from a dead beetle!


In June, Alexander went to his first summer scout camp. Then in July, we took off to Melbourne for a holiday in my home town of Melbourne, Australia. I must write a public thank you to Bec & Jeff (my little bro) for putting us up, and arranging for a couple of parties that enabled us to catch up with lots of family members that I hadn’t seen in years. This meant a lot for me. It was especially great to meet my new nephew (Jax) and be there for his first birthday party.


In August, Alexander and I went to the Copenhagen Historic Grand Prix for some V8 action.


We also went for a tip on the Lyngby Lakes on one lovely summers day.


We also went to the Arla Food Festival in Copenhagen, and Alexander went up on stage to help break the record for the longest sausage made by children in Denmark.

For Alexander’s October school holiday, we visited the southern islands of Denmark for the first time.


And Alexander got a new ukulele for Christmas!


Hopefully I will be more frequent with my posts in 2016!

Gentofte Unibet Stars – Icehockey

Alexander and I went to our first game of Ice Hockey today! It was very exciting. It was between the local Gentofte team (actually next-door to where I play cricket these days), and Herning. After the full 60 minutes the score was tied on 3-3. Luckily, Gentofte scored in the 5 minutes of extra time and won the game!

At least I think that is what happened. I don’t actually know the rules.
