  1. Dear Shelly,

    I am glad that you have found my work in Northampton of interest – if you would like to know anything else do let me know. I would mention that I have been engaged in research on the site since 1992 and I have been working since this time to establish the importance of the site since I first identified it as the site of the cemetery some 6 months before the accidental discovery of burials on the site during repairs to a culvert.

  2. Dear Shelly:

    What is the furthest anyone has traced their genealogy?

    Could you explain?
