Welcome To Swinton People
Swinton People is a record and celebration of the past inhabitants of Swinton. The details of Swinton’s past inhabitants have been obtained from the grave headstones still standing in Saint Margaret's graveyard, from Censuses and from people connected to Swinton, to name just three sources.
Swinton People isn’t just about adding names to a database. It’s also about revealing the personalities of Swinton’s past people and their experiences of Swinton in yesteryear. This requires interaction and discussion between people with a shared interest in Swinton and its people. To facilitate this, two external social mediums have been created which are a FACEBOOK page and a GOOGLE GROUP. Swinton People Google Group serves as a searchable forum/mailing list and is an ideal place to take part in discussions or post any queries regarding Swinton and/or its past inhabitants.
If enough people contribute to this project, it will be possible to create an extremely interesting picture of the people who have lived in Swinton and the people they were/are connected to.
