Gar­den­ing to Gard­ner

Who Do You Think You Are? Magazine - - WRITE IN -

While chan­nel hop­ping, I hap­pened upon the WDYTYA? pro­gramme fea­tur­ing Frank Gard­ner. I was im­me­di­ately hooked upon hear­ing the name Rolle­stone (my maiden name) and con­nec­tions with the Mid­lands, as I orig­i­nated from Le­ices­ter.

I have dusted off my lap­top and pur­chased the Oc­to­ber copy of your mag­a­zine. The next step is to de­cide on a pack­age and, with a few point­ers from friends, I am em­bark­ing upon a new hobby.

As I was born in 1942, I re­tain mem­o­ries of some past gen­er­a­tions, to­gether with handed-down sto­ries. There is also a fam­ily busi­ness to re­search.

The gar­den has been ‘put to bed’ for the win­ter and I look for­ward to many happy hours in front of the com­puter.

I would be hon­oured to be re­lated to Frank Gard­ner, let alone Wil­liam the Con­queror! Wendy Brown, by email Editor replies: Wel­come to ge­neal­ogy, Wendy. It’s al­ways great to hear that the show has in­spired peo­ple to start their re­search. I wish you luck find­ing a link to Frank. Narkun­dra crew bit.ly/1RDLqXR
