Re: Remembering Norwich

In June last year, I wrote a blog called Remembering Norwich. I was discussing my memory and how I couldn’t remember a family holiday to visit my aunt and uncle living in Norwich.

Probably the most addictive thing I have come across is researching my family history! I started in 2009 with my mum in hope we could find out a bit more about our family. 6 years later, we are both still completely hooked on trying to find out more about our ancestors.  Read the rest of this entry
