Thank you so much for all your work on my Fathers side of the family. It is especially welcome for me as I feel I am getting to know the Father who died when I was just 9years old. You bring the people alive with your information, you must love your job it is fascinating. I look forward to finding out about my mothers side in due course."
Kind regards Eileen.
"Many thanks Mary. You have given me several leads to follow up now. I see Rose was right out there on the 'frontier'; close to the former Indian territories of the Dakotas. She almost qualifies as a Pioneer. I studied this period in history so it is of particular interest to me.
Many thanks again for your help,"
How good to find your message from you after a very poor afternoon tea for a friend of ours nearing 90......£35 per head for an indifferent service and poor food..........roll on that Devon cream tea......thanks for all new info....
my inclination is to go forward with the Lockstones and then come back to
I'm enjoying the journey with you but think that maybe it works better with one pathway at a time......or my brain is too challenged me thinks......poor old thing......
Remember CLUTTER is stuck energy so if in doubt throw it out.......maybe"
Good Wishes Di
With Lots of thanks for beating life into out dusty old selves and bringing us into the 21st century. Love from Rollo the Viking and Richard III, Josiah the Potter ( Wedgwood) Charles Darwin et al
and of course, firmly in the 21st century, Barry and Sandra. "
"Barry and I have had a quick look and both think that it is splendid. The presentation is clear and also interesting and we like all the Victorian illustrations. We shall look forward to reading it all later. Thank you to you and your staff for putting together such a lovely family history. Little did we realise when it started that it would go beyond 1800. What a surprise that was! We both look forward to the next instalment!"
Barry and Sandra, Guernsey
Thank you so much for doing this, means a lot to me, my mother, and my Uncle Bob, my father worked on this ( without computer) for a long time, and sadly is not alive to witness this direct connection. I come to Yeovil every year to see my Mum and maybe drop in and see you one day."
Steven ( Seattle, USA) - and he did come in last week!
Thank you so much for all your research and for your patience and good humour - Na Mihi Nui."

"You will not believe my excitement at this news. I was always thinking it would be almost impossible finding anything out, and here you have come up with more information than I could gather in years. I am truly impressed."

"Many thanks for the binder containing all the results of your searches. I was delighted, especially with the extra historical information. It puts everything into perspective."
"It certainly is amazing what is written here and my husband is most impressed so far, he is still reading through it now.
Thank you again,"
I have read the Bennett Report carefully. I suppose you folks hear this all the time, but this report produced more than I could manage in months of searching, if indeed, I could come up with anything at all.
I think your report has given me some fast holds from which to branch our and hopefully find out more about Bridget and William.
I have forwarded the excellent report to my father and brother who I am sure will be happy to read it.. And my Dad may still remember ( aged 98) that address your report included at the time of his dad's death which would mean a lot to him to see in the report."
"When I gave Mary a bag of scraps of paper and the odd certificate, I wasn't sure what she would be able to do with them. Six months later, my Family History project is complete and I am amazed at the level of well researched and beautifully presented, information Mary has produced. As if by magic, a window has opened into the past and I now feel a real connection to my wonderful and complex family."
