Looks a very good site with a wide range of content.Being brought up in Kew and with grandparents and greats from Hammersmith and Fulham I have already found some interesting bits.I put in the name of a road in Fulham and loads of records came up.Tbese could be narrowed by looking at the right side for a list .....I chose people and there were two pages of people who lived there but not my humble folk.
I think I will be investigating all weeknd as I found old pictures which brought back memories.
Thanks Dawn for letting us know
