We are all here cos we love or are addicted or have other personal reasons for searching our family tree !
My 14 year old daughter is currently on a school trip to Belgium, Ypres. Today after I had provided her with all the details, she visited the grave of my gt gt uncle who died in 1918 in the great war aged just 18...................she layed down a poppy and signed the book. Doesn`t that make us "mad" lot seem the most least mad of all. Thats what this is all about.................although a very sad day, today would noy have happened if I had never started this search ! RIP uncle Robert Proctor
