When Nancy and I set the blog going we were not sure how it would take off, we have been more than thrilled with all the help from others which has been so freely offered . We had no intentions of getting into Genealogy... but it was inevitable such request would turn up. We have always done what we can to help others and will carry on doing so. What we'd like now is if Rowan can be given some pointers into his family history. We have little knowledge to add but know that out there many of you have spent hours researching your family trees. If you can suggest anything to help Rowan with his quest please do so in the comments or email us and we will pass it on.
One thing we would like to show is your family's histories if it concerns Hyde, you could do the post yourself.. include pictures, and your own story and we'd be pleased to show it here.
