About this Website and your Host

I'm based in the UK and have been active privately & professionally in the field of Family History Research for some years, brough about by the extraordinary tale I grew up with surrounding my Maternal Grandfathers illegitimate birth. The mystery of who his parents were fuelled my ambition to one day uncover the truth and in time I was astonished to discover that my Great-grandfather had been Joe Boganny of Music-Hall fame and that he was also of Irish/Jewish ancestry. 

Since then I've learnt a great deal about the lives & careers of Mr. Boganny, his father, the Equestrian Clown & Gymnast Frank Clifton, and their wider show-business family, many of whom I'm profiling here, and all currently remains a work in progress. 

Today some vital records elude me, I hope laying hidden in the archives yet to find, hence the creation of this site, for as broad an audience as possible, to document the facts for the record, for fellow researchers & scholars, for all who are interested and most importantly for my family.


Contact Information - I'm keen to learn further from well informed sources, so if you'd like to contact me and contribute new information, have fresh insight concerning anyone profiled here, especially of Frank Clifton, wish to comment on, or have queries about anything written in these pages, then please contact me using the form below and I'll respond as soon as I can. Thank you, James Bohun
