Letter: From Salisbury, England, come celebrate 800 years

Hello from Salisbury, England.

On many visits to New England we have been fascinated to see names that can still be found in our city today. In 2020 our church, St. Thomas and St. Edmund, is celebrating 800 years of worship. This led us to wonder whether there are people living in the U.S.A. who perhaps worshipped, got married or were buried in our city church. If you think you may have a past family member who came from our city in England, we would love to hear from you. After receiving a little information from you we can check back to the 1700s in the parish records.

It would be wonderful to add your descendants to our church family. Please email office@stthomassalisbury.co.uk.
