Announcement
After five and a half years, I am finding that the technical challenges of maintaining, updating and developing this website are sadly no longer enjoyable. I will not be renewing the contract with my website hosting service provider, and so this website will close down on 31 August 2017.
My interest in the CHRIMES/CRIMES/CHRYMES/CRYMES One Name Study continues, as a personal endeavour, and I may publish my research online using established genealogy websites, but this bespoke website will not continue.
My greatest pleasure has been the contacts with many fellow researchers and I hope that those contacts will continue.
If you are interested in taking over the domain name chrimes.org please let me know.
