Hello - I'm a 69-year-old retired mainframe computing boffin, and previously an industrial research chemist.
See CV for details but please don't offer me a job - I'm retired.
I live in Hertfordshire, in the south east of England with my wife Maureen and our cat, Pippa (who is now seven years old).
Some of my time, these days, is devoted to researching my Family History, but I also spend time contributing to Wiktionary.
The primary purpose of these pages is to publish the results of the research into my genealogy and family history.
If you have any interest in the KNAGGS surname (or any of its many variants), its origins, distribution and history, just email me and I will answer any query.
The second purpose of these pages is to publish my autobiography.
This is an on-going project and I am currently working on the 1980s.
In the Knaggs Family Genealogy you will find details of my own genealogy, that of the KNAGGS surname, and a few other odds and ends that you might find useful.
The story of my life, so far, is set out in the following pages. I hope that you find it of some interest.
If you find that you are playing it for more than 10 minutes, then you are very very sad.
This site was originally at www.angelfire.com but has now been moved to homepage.ntlworld.com/jeffery.knaggs/index.html If you try to access the old site, you should be automatically redirected here.
I have tried to design this site using the principles of 'Usable Information Technology' advocated by Jakob Nielsen but I am always open to suggestions for improvement, both to content and to design.
