  3. Smile Hello everyone

    I have been researching intermittently for 30 years (when we could still go to Somerset House and hold the books in our hands lol) but have just recently discovered Ancestry and spend many hours a day on there. I'm looking forward to any further discovery I can make from the forum. Regards
