I see theres no mention of rummaging through antique shops for old postcards and letters incase they belonged to your own ancestors

Yep guilty as charged!

I'm so adicted, I've even got my brother and his wife carrying a notebook and pen with them when they go on their Sunday walks, just in case they come across a graveyard.  A few weeks ago they looked over a wall into a churchyard straight at a grave with our name on it.  Who was it?????  When did they die?????  Don't know.  Think it was James or Walter......Aaaaaaaagh!
