My email address is and I would be glad to hear from anyone wishing to correspond about the Backler name or the contents of my blog.

The accuracy of this blog is entirely down to my own efforts.  I have used the research of others, besides my own research, but only used data where I believed it to be correct.  I would be delighted to have any mistakes pointed out.  Please note, in these days of internet security concerns, I have been sparing with details of those I am fairly sure are currently living and, for instance, I have only quoted full dates and full addresses for my distant ancestors, so please bear this in mind when discussing more recent connections.
