The printed newsletter ceased in the summer of 2000 after twenty six issues. I have now placed them on the website, listed below in pdf format. They will take a while to open up in a new browser window.

On many of them the photos were simply photocopied and so are missing from these online copies. Also, I have lost the July 96 copy and the first two newsletters are also not here (they were hand-typed). I do intend to put back in the missing photos at some stage and put up the early 'typed' newsletters, when I get time!


A Quick Review of the old (1990 - 2000) Minney Newsletters


Some interesting articles from the first twenty six newsletters include;

  • Johnnie Minney, a documented haunting in Waresley, Hunts,
  • Harry Minney, an amnesia victim who allegedly made the national press,
  • Mr Minney of London, acclaimed portrait by W W Russell now in the Tate Gallery
  • John Thomas Minney, transported convict to NSW 1817
  • Louis Minnie, mayor of Port Huron, Michigan, USA in 1880s
  • Arthur Minney, First World War casualty
  • Descendants of Daniel Minney, USA (several articles on this line)
  • Minney Row, Great Barford
  • Francis Minney, indentured apprentice 1721
  • Beds Parish Poor Law Papers, featuring three Minney families on the move
  • Rubeigh Minney, numerous articles and press cuttings
  • Sir Hugh Meyni, 13thc knight
  • James Minney, servitor in Hereford
  • Robert Minnie of Virginia
  • Romeo Minney, numerous articles
  • Albert Minney, mysterious death in Africa
  • Minney Moor, South Yorkshire, numerous articles
  • Minny Moon, place name in Cornwall
  • Minney Creek, Oregon, USA
  • Father Brendan Minney, headmaster & Benedictine monk
  • Herbert Minney, an Australian patriarch
  • Commonwealth War Graves

Also included were search results and extracts from The Times index, internet searches, IGI results, various index listings and so on. I also include lists of Minneys from parish registers, census returns, monument inscriptions, St Catherine's House, Somerset House, etc. There have been a few articles on Minnell as well.

The newsletter is deposited in several major archives including; the British Library, the Bodleian Library (Oxford University), and the Library of Congress USA. This will ensure that the newsletter will also become a useful reference for future generations studying the family history of the Minneys.
