The fford.me.uk website is about me, Clifford E Ford, and the history of my family, particularly those of my ancestors bearing the Ford name who were born and raised on the flanks of Mow Cop on the Staffordshire-Cheshire border. I chose the fford.me.uk domain name because more obvious names were taken, and because in some old, hand-written documents the name Ford appears to be spelled fford, with two lower case f characters rather than an upper case F. Some families still use the latter form, or have reverted to it, Not me! I am decidedly a Ford.
In keeping with conventions on the processing of personal information, there is precious little public information on this site about individuals after the first decade of the 20th Century, However, the site is a family site too, and there are some private areas that can be accessed only by registered family members and friends. Nothing secret or sensitive, just family pictures and news.
The site is powered by Joomla, a Content Management System (CMS). It is my first Joomla site, although I have produced other sites with Zope and TikiWiki. Too techy? Suffice it to say that work on the site commenced on 25 September, 2008, and I have to learn how to use Joomla as well as create content. So if it still looks a bit disorganised - I am still learning!
