A brief history, and acknowledgments for FreeCEN

Those Remembered

Roy Conibear:  Passed away at his home in Ottawa, Canada on 25th Feb. 2001, aged 71.
With North Devon ancestry, Roy was a stalwart contributor to the Devon cause and contributed much to the Roots web Devon list over several years.
He was also a right-hand man to Dennis Radford in the North American FreeCEN (Devon) organisation and achieved many transcriptions on his own.
A knowledgeable gentleman, who has been sadly missed.
Bob Muchamore:  Passed away suddenly at his home in South Australia on 5th Sep. 2004, aged 70.
Born in Taunton, Somerset in 1934, Bob was one of the pioneers of the FreeCEN project, from the very earliest days, both as a stalwart of the Devon Project and as king-pin of the overall project management.
Bob served on the FreeCEN Exec through some of its most difficult times, only stepping down a mere 5 months before he died.
Throughout his time with the project, even after his "retirement", Bob was utterly tireless in offering freely of his encyclopaedic knowledge of all things FreeCEN to those in need of help. His contribution to the project cannot be overstated, and he will be hugely missed.
Dave Newbury: Passed away after a long illness December 2010.
He was the Chairman of FreeCEN for the last few years and a pioneer of the FreeREG Project. He will be sadly missed.
