What our correspondents are saying

I was wondering how our families might be connected. I found a heap of information about my family tree on your website, the Grant family. I was curious how/why you came across all of that info and if you had any more, specifically even further back in time than what is shown here?

I am researching Thomas Daniel 1762-1854. I’ve found a very informative biography of him on your site, but I wonder how he fits into the Cumberbatch family tree.
I also have a very interesting scrapbook made by Lawrence Henry Cumberbatch during the 19th C. It may well be of some interest to family members. Let me know if any one would like to see is very much a hard copy!
