Finding family treasures

Postby Admin » Fri Oct 17, 2008 9:13 pm

Calling all readers,

Here at the magazine we are feverishly trying to track down Boris Johnson's family silver, the ornate tea set given to Boris's ancestor, Caroline von Rothenburg, the illegitimate daughter of Prince Paul of Wuttermburg.

But we are also eager to hear about the family heirlooms or related items that you have managed to track down and buy on eBay, other websites or auction houses.

So please do get in touch with your own stories of finding family treasures - whether they are diaries, letters, postcards, photos or objects used or manufactured by your ancestors - and you might well find your story, and your family treasure, in the magazine.

I know you're an enthustiatic and knowledgeable bunch, so I'd be really grateful for any help with this.

Email me at or call on 0117 314 8843.
