Hi If you wish to find blog entries on a particular topic (e.g. a town, person, industry, local French resistance) then just visit the ‘TOPICS’ drop down menu on the right-hand side of the page, scroll down and select the topic that interests you. I also recommend that you explore the ‘LINKS’ section at the bottom right-hand side of this page to discover the wealth of writing on the Touraine area. I want this site to be as interactive as possible with a view to developing a place of interest for the casual, interested reader but also as a resource for schools and colleges and a gateway to information for individual research. As well as appreciating comments and feedback on the contents I post, I encourage visitors to send me old images, maps or text on aspects of local history so I can post them on this site to share with others who have an interest in the Touraine. Well that’s about it, do keep your comments coming, enjoy exploring this site and I look forward to hearing from you in the near future. Warm regards, Jim
