My name is Keith Atkinson. This is my personal website where I have included my research into the history of my hometown, Shotton, Deeside, and my genealogy research which covers not only the Atkinson name, but other significant surnames such as Swindlehurst and Blakeborough.


I do hope you will enjoy browsing my site and maybe it will assist you with your own research - or perhaps you can provide me with some information to expand my own.
