Is Robert Webster in the house?

This is an appeal for Robert Webster to contact me at the Brownhills Blog.

Some years ago, Rob created the ‘Websters Genealogy’ site, which had an absolutely top-notch section on Brownhills local history, containing some excellent material that I’d not seen anywhere else. Unfortunately, the site has now been down for a very long time. Although it still remains in the wonderful Wayback Machine, I’d like some of the content to live again, as it were, through the auspices of this blog. The work was fantastic, and it deserves as wide an audience as I can get it. That it is nearly lost now is a tradgedy.

I know that Rob is, or was a resident of Brownhills, and I’m guessing he’d be in his late fifties by now. If you can give him a shout, or indeed, if Rob himself is reading this, please could you contact me on BrownhillsBob at Googlemail dot com.

Thanks for your help.
