Selling Sparrows
The Guildford branch of the WSFHS enjoyed your talk on "Pressed or volunteer?" very much and were amused by the graphics which kept popping up on the illustrations. Our members were enthralled with your extensive research into your boatswain ancestor and amazed what you had discovered. We know how long it takes just to find one piece of information and you were covering different continents 200 years ago. On behalf of all of us, I thank you for another stimulating and informative evening. November 2013
‘We heard nothing but praise for your presentation and can confirm that everyone not only found it very interesting but also thoroughly enjoyed it.'

May I take this opportunity of thanking you for your wonderful talk and presentation. I do not think anyone took a breath yesterday during you talk, in case they missed any part of it.
Dunstable U3A Family History Group 'Pressed or Volunteer?' November 2013
On behalf of our members may I thank you most sincerely for such a stimulating evening. You put on a most entertaining animated slide show despite the horrors of the 19th century working life for the children depicted. I think we all learned some new aspect of child poverty and the harsh conditions of work.
