Gary SamsonGary Samson is an IT manager in the School of Psychology at the University of Kent, who spends a good deal of his time designing and maintaining accessible, database-driven web sites. Spare moments are devoted to chasing elusive sixteenth-century ancestors and researching the history of Woodchurch, especially anything military. He is also Chair of the Woodchurch Ancestry Group (WAG): a small collection of impossibly enthusiastic local historians and transcribers. You can see their work here and on the WAG website. Gary lives just outside Canterbury with his old and venerable Golden Retriever, Fearghas.
