Would be a good idea to get a list of music/arts/entertainment venues on here
Perhaps also a list of Jersey/Guernsey artists/musicians/bands past and present
- Yes, agree entirely
- West Park Pav etc from late 20th century, and before. My father told tales of Saturday nights there in DJs
- Where were the venues in Jersey before WW2? Greve de Lecq?
- Who is going to do the research?
- Mike Bisson
Mike, I remeber the DJs at the Pav.
And after the Germans went ¿?
>Wests Cinema, upstairs - I used to go dancing there
>The Forum, upstairs - ditto
>Even the New Era - now who remembers the back row in the New Era¿?
There was also a place out at St Laurence where the French workers had their dances but the mind is blank as to where it is. I still remembeer a nice dance there though with a fella playing his accordion.. 07.Oct.2010
How about a page for details of any cross reference issues that users have noticed but perhaps don't have the info to research or correct themselves.
Example Search "Denize" and it says Jourdain Denize was a Jurat in 1331. I believe this to be correct as I have found other supporting evidence elsewhere. However, follow Jurat to the list of Jurats in 1331 and he is not listed. Maybe the 1331 list is incomplete, or maybe he was not a Jurat.
Mike Bisson's response
I think this is just the right place for this type of comment, and they are very welcome. This is an example of information being provided by two different writers. The Jurat list is based largely on the research of historian the Rev J A Messervy, who published lists in the Annual Bulletin of La Société Jersiaise in the 19th century, and he does not include Denize in 1331. However, I have just bought a copy of the Extente for 1331 anhd expect it to be delivered next week, so I shall cross-check the information contained in the Denize page and update either or both references. Thank you for pointing this out.
I suggest categories for organisations concerned with local heritage - one per bailiwick, so probably "Jersey heritage bodies" and "Guernsey heritage bodies". Happy to create them and populate at least the Jersey one (which would include Jersey Heritage, NTJ, CIFHS, Societe for starters). --Jmbmac 07:17, 16 August 2010 (UTC)
