BOWN contacts & Bown Web pages on the Internet  

These are all contacts I have made in the course of my research on the Internet. If you want your details added, email me.

Please advise me if your details have changed, or are incorrect, or if you wish to have your details removed.

Generally speaking, you remain relatively anonymous by only quoting your email address. I DO NOT list postal addresses or the specific area in which a person resides. People with like interests are advised to contact each other by email first.

Remember, not everyone may have your enthusiasm and time, so don't put undue pressure on other's to come up with information for you, or the relationship may end abruptly.
