East London Research

I'm really enjoying the East London Research feature in the current edition. Nice to see London separated out a bit because it is such a large area.

Cheers, FHA

Cheese's Comeback

Personally, I don't mind some of these 'mucked up travesties'. Some are rather nice - cheddar with chives, chillies and chuntney spring to mind.

I will agree with you about Northumberland sheep's cheese though. Delicious.

They Passed This Way

If you could see your ancestors all standing in a row
Do you think you'd be proud of them or don't you really know?
Some strange discoveries are made in climbing family trees
And some of them do not particularly please!

If you could see your ancestors all standing in a row
There might be some of them ...

So, you've been researching for years and you want to pull it all together and present it in a logical fashion, so the uninitiated will understand it.
